Additional Materials
Crochet hook size L-11 (8 mm)
GAUGE:
1 ripple = about 6 in. (15 cm). 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.

NOTES:
1.

Afghan is worked in a ripple 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.

The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-dc peaks and skipped st valleys.

Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned.

3.

When working in ripple pattern, your piece may not lay flat until after you've worked a few rows.

4.

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.

Proceed with new color.

Fasten off old color.
