Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use a gauge of 1 ripple (measured from peak to peak) = about 8-1/2 inch (21-1/2 cm) to crochet an afghan that is about 52 inch x 60 inch (132 cm x 152-1/2 cm). Remember to check your gauge. 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. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch (10 cm) square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

    Notes: This project 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. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-dc peaks and dc2tog-over-3 valleys. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. 3 dc are worked into the center dc of peaks and dc2togover-3 are worked centered over valleys.
