Syncopated Ripple Afghan

Lion Brand® Homespun®


11 1/2 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm) over 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


1. Afghan is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it's important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
2. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.

Work 6 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 4 rows with C, 2 rows with A, 4 rows with B, 6 rows with C, 4 rows with A, 6 rows with B, 2 rows with C, 6 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 4 rows with C, 2 rows with A, 6 rows with B, and 4 rows with C.

With A, ch 146.
Row 1: Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook, *sc in each of next 7 ch, sk 1 ch, sc in each of next 7 ch, 3 sc in next ch; rep from * 8 times, sc in each of next 7 ch, sk 1 ch, sc in each of next 7 ch, 2 sc in last ch.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), turn, dc in first st, * dc in next 7 sc, sk 2 sc, dc in next 7 sc, 3 dc in next sc; rep from * 8 times, dc in next 7 sc, sk 2 sc, dc in next 7 sc, 2 dc in last sc.

Rows 4 and 5: With A, rep Rows 2 and 3.
Row 6: With A, rep Row 2.
Change to B.
Rows 7- 60: Continue as established to rep Rows 2 and 3, changing colors following Color Sequence, until entire Sequence has been worked.

Syncopated Ripple Afghan Reviewed by Darla Suder on 2014-11-01 *****
Very easy. I made it bigger than the pattern called for. My son wanted one in his favorite football team's colors.
