On my last post I shared a Card in a Box I made for my Daughter's 30th Birthday and today I would like to share with you the gift that I made her.
It is a Ripple Afghan in Fall colors. This was my first time doing the ripple stitch and was afraid to start it, thinking there is no way I will be able to do it. Until I seen a video on youtube. After watching it I thought Wow, This is so much easier than I thought.
I have to tell you I really enjoyed making this. But did have a little trouble at first because there was a few things on the video that I wasn't understanding and by reading some of the comments, noticed others were having some problems understanding to.
Like at the beginning and ending of each row. You always have two Double Crochets together at the beginning and at the end.
At the beginning after you make the two D.C. together you then add three more Double Crochets before you start the first decrease.
At the end of each row after you finish the last decrease you will do three Double Crochets and then your two Double Crochets. So that is total of 5 D.C at the beginning and end of each row.
Also a tip to help you, You really have to pay attention to your pattern. I missed a stitch a few times and the way I knew that I had was on your Increases. Your last Increase will always be right on top of the Increase below it.
Here is a list of the names of the yarn that I used.
Love all of the colors and thought they went well together for Fall colors. I called my Afghan (Rippled Waves of Fall) because that's exactly what it looked like to me.
Here is a link to the Video that I watched. Hoping what I shared helps you if you have any trouble. If you decide to make one.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the Afghan that I made and If you decide to make one, Please let me know I would Love to see it.
Thanks for stopping by. Cindy
