I love this pattern. I have made 3 blankets with it so far. It is so fun to make and I like to use different colors to make each blanket unique.

I love (!!) this pattern. In 2014 I made 10 baby afghans using this pattern with different colors based on the nursery colors. Everyone loves the afghans. It is a very easy afghan because of the one row pattern. I'm starting my 1st of this pattern in 2015. I do advise using a larger hook for the beginning chain. Otherwise, it curls. My afghan lays flat. I recommend this pattern to anyone looking for something easy to make that turns out great.

I agree with the last comments - same problem. Have taken the strips apart several times to make sure I was doing the pattern correctly. Something seems to be wrong at the turning at the second row - or the ending of the first row.

I had major problems with the ripples buckling up and the waves seemed to be off. I have started over several times just to make sure that I was reading the pattern right as well as creating the exact number of stitiches. Each time I have counted everything out but the pattern still did not come out right every time, so I ended up having to do some creative stitches instead. I may try this pattern with a larger crochet hook just to see if the error is with me.

Love this afghan! I made this for our grandson that is due in August. I cannot wait for his parents to see it at their baby shower. I started it 5 days ago and I finished it earlier today. I worked an additional panel of the 3 colors to make it a little longer. I will make this one again. I loved working with this yarn, nice and soft.

Well I wish I would have read the reviews before starting this project! The puckering seems to be due to the fact that there is too much "pull" from the dc2tog. I'm going to try *2dc 6 times, single dc in next 2 stitches, then dc2tog 4 times, single dc in next 2 stitches* and see if that calms it down.

I have made this a few times for new additions and people just love it! Mine also puckered but then I started just using the back loop!! I at times throw in a little hat of the main color!!

I am finishing up making this afghan and I am loving it. I think it is very simple and easy to follow and make. The only thing I did differently was rotate the colors around. I havent finished making it and everyone who sees it just adores it. My daughter, who Im making it for, just cant wait. Great pattern.

I'm in the process of making this and had read the previous reviews. The problem with the "puckering" is that you need to pick up the back part of the dc stitch, not go through the 2 loops that form the "v". I hope I'm making this clear -- it makes all the difference in the world. Works up very quickly!!

Good Luck!!

Based on other comments I crocheted very loosely. It's still a bit rippled, but I like it! I don't think it will be flat most of the time anyway. This is a great pattern and I will certainly be using it again! Because of how loosely I crocheted I did need a little more than two skeins of the boarder color.
