CORRECTIONS: (applied Mar 17, 2003)
There is a typo on the Back. After cast on and knit three rows, it says "Next Row (RS)..." and the following section also begins "Next Row (RS)". That second one should be "Next Row (WS)".The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

GAUGE:
21 sts + 26 rows = 4" (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
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
