Melon Ripple Afghan

By:

1 Comments

Wrap yourself up in this cool Melon Ripple Afghan.  Light enough for the summer, yet warm enough to keep you warm in the winter months, this crocheted afghan pattern would compliment any living room or bedroom.  The ripple stitch is easy to master, and is a great technique to help challenge yourself if you're new to crochet.

Materials:

  • 3 skeins Caron International's Simply Soft (100% Acrylic, 6 oz/170g, 315 yd/288 m) yarn in Off White
  • 2 skeins Caron International's Simply Soft (100% Acrylic, 6 oz/170g, 315 yd/288 m) yarn in Pistachio
  • 2 skeins Caron International's Simply Soft (100% Acrylic, 6 oz/170g, 315 yd/288 m) yarn in Melon
  • Sizes US I-9 (5.5mm) or size to obtain gauge

 

Gauge:  In ripple pattern, 1 pattern repeat and 6 rows = 4"/10 cm.  Gauge is after fabric has been blocked. One pattern repeat is one 'ripple', measure from top point of one ripple to top point of next ripple.

 

Notes:

  • The ripples formed by the pattern stitch become more evident after four or more rows have been worked.
  • To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.

I am wondering if anyone else has the problem of increases in rows even though you're following the pattern? I have such a hard time after the 2nd row because the count is off due to the increases for the "mountains". I follow the patterns to the letter so I'm lost a to what is happening. Any help?
