My Design Inspiration:
For the first time in my 30 years of designing, I am clueless as to what my inspiration was for this pattern!  I can only say that the ripple design which radiates from the center out has always been one of my favorite classic crochet designs.  I also know that I wanted to crochet this baby layette with colors of yarn that were not the traditional baby colors.  The orange and lime green on a sea of off-white, seemed like a gorgeous color combination.   
To create this masterpiece I had lots of help from Vickie, my crocheter, who figured out the pattern repeats for each round of the afghan; Wendi, who wrote the pattern; Helen, who did the second testing; and my daughter Allison, who helped me choose the colors.  It takes a village to create a good crochet pattern.  I have the vision and they make it happen.
You complete the circle of our vision by choosing to purchase our patterns.  I am very grateful to you for including our patterns into your crochet journey.  I hope that our patterns enable you to relax and enjoy your wonderful creative expression.

How It Is Made:
The layette is made using a Light Worsted Weight yarn. Colorful flower motifs join together to create the basis for the ripple. The pattern pack includes directions for afghan, jacket, hat and booties.

Oh Yeah:
Keep the Sunshine of your life cute and cozy with this striking ripple design.
