Crochet Ripple Afghan

Lion Brand« Homespun®

GAUGE:

1 ripple = 5 1/2 in. [14 cm] in ripple pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Dc3tog (dc 3 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES:

To change color work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st.

Crochet Ripple Afghan Reviewed by Theresa Stiner on 2013-01-24 *****
I love it! A very easy pattern. One thing I like about the ripple pattern is that if you mess up you will realize it before too long. I love the colors and feel of the Homespun yarn. If I was to make it again I would use the solid colors and avoid the "painterly" colors. You can see in the picture that the "Prairie Fire" stripe each row looks like a different color.
