I am having a problem understanding how to start row 2. The diagram doesn't seem to match the instructions. Can you make it more clear? Thanks

For shawl crochet 8 pattern repeats.

Yes. Just figure your stitch mulitples to as close to the size you wish, then ripple stitch away. Remember as pattern progresses, some shrinking of width will occur. By row 4 you should be able to see what your final size will be.

Can you please provide the info for a throw size blanket? I started and did 8 rows and realized it is way too big for a college kid to drag around.

Thanks for your sharing.

Before the decrease you have
(dc in next ch, ch 1, skip next ch) repeat 3 times
so you do have the instructions for ch1, skip next ch, right before the decrease

Hey Judy so this was a pretty straight forward pattern just reading through and using the diagram for reference (in my opinion). However I have done the same thing with patterns. If you are still having problems with the pattern, I'd be happy to try and help; just let me know where you are becoming confused with it. I am beginning this pattern as well once I am given, or self determine how to adjust for worsted weight yarn and increase size; so it wouldn't at all be going out of my way to assist:)

Caitlin, Thanks for responding. I think I have it figured out. In the very beginning the ch 1, skip next ch, (dc in next ch, c 1) repeat 3 times is printed 2 times. Also, at the end repeat *to* 16 times. I came up with 14. I am working on row 2 now and it seems to be working out. I started crocheting in Oct and really like it. If I come across any other problems, I will be sure to come back for help. Again, thank you.

Hi. I'm not sure if you are the pattern designer but do you. Happen to know what the pattern repeat is on this ripple afghan I would like to make mine about half the width

What do you have to change to use worsted weight yarn? That is what I am using, seems like it should be a bigger hook... I like to crochet advanced beginner maybe lol

I am having trouble with row one too. I also think that first part is repeated, so I tried it just once, and got to decrease #17, but I have like one stitch left and can't finish the row. Have you gotten farther, and is it working for you?

Hi I'm wanting to crochet this. Did you rewrite the instructions with your fixed directions you noted. If so please send. Thx much. I'm a newbie too. Tried the cloudy day ripple throw at reheat but isn't working for me

I have made two afghans using this pattern, but I had to tweak it a little. If you look at graph, there are six posts, but in the afghan there are only five that I can see. I made it with six and so the counts were different. I gave them both as gifts and they are quite beautiful.

Hi Judy
Everything works out well if you follow her afghan and not the diagram(5 posts works out very well for the pattern)The diagram is just to show the pattern, this part stumped me to, until I counted the posts on her afghan.

If you have figured out direction for row 1, please send to me. I wonder about the beginning as it seemed like to many. Thanks

You can crochet this afghan in any yarn. If you have the same gauge, you'll get the same size. To make it 4" wider, just increase for 1 repeat. To make it longer crochet more rows.

I to had issues when I got to the 3rd row. So I took everything out and started over but this time I chained 1 after each stitch on row with an exception on the dc2 ch3 dc2 I left that exactly the same. It then worked for me.

You seem to have had the same issues I'm running into and am curious how you finally got the pattern to work for you. I'm usually pretty good at reading patterns and reworking them but I am at a loss with this one. And the diagram is no help since it seems to have extra stitches compaired to the picture and instructions. I will take any and all advice if someone can help. Thanks!

Should be multiple of 25 plus 5. If you do 20 your always left 5 stitches short or its multiple of 20 add 10. Either way I've always had to go back and add 5 stitches.

How do you print just the pattern?

Sorry to ask what I am sure is a silly question, but how do you decrease in the 2nd row? I tried but then could not get the 3rd row to work so I think I went wrong in the 2nd row. I cant get the directions and the picture to match up so I'm stuck. I end up with dc in the chain space right before where the decrease should be, and when I try to decrease, it says to dc in the next chain space and there isn't one.

Is there a chance for a possible video tutorial? I seem to get confused when I end/ begin a row. Was just wondering since sometimes a visual demonstration sometimes is the trick. thank you for the lovely pattern.

I had a difficult time at first, I think I just had a difficult time deciphering the instructions. What I found helpful was to copy and paste the instructions o. word document and break the steps up step by step. After that it was smooth sailing. I haven't finished yet but so far it looks beautiful. Thank you for allowing me to use the pattern.

I am wanting to use this pattern for a twin size bed coverlet. Could you tell me if it is 66w x 54l or 66 length x 54 width. If you have the number of repeats for this size that would be most helpful

Can I use worsted weight yarn for this afghan?

November 3, 2013

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern, absolutely love it. This will be my first afghan and I am so excited to use your pattern. Everything is going well, but I found that you have to count the posts(there are 5 posts) on your afghan and not the diagram. The diagram is so nice to have so you can figure out the pattern. Thanx again
