what is the easiest and cleanest way to change yarn colors when making a ripple stitch crochet afghan?

 

Nov 4, 2013

I have started this afghan 3 times and each time the ripples don't count out right. When you should count 9 stitches I count 7 or 8. The small zig zag pattern your are suppose to count 4 stitches Ion the return I count 3 stitches. I so wanted to make this for my cousin for Christmas but It does not work out evenly.

I understand the crochet 9 twice and crochet 4 twice to create the points but this creates points of different size...is this correct or will it smooth out at the end?

am currently working on this...I am a decent crochet person...I understand the crochet 9 twice and crochet 4 twice for the points but it is creating different size points...is this normal? Does it smooth out at the end to match the first row?

It's not making sense to me that the first and last sc are left unworked on each row. That would make the edges uneven, to the point that the afghan will be at triangle instead of a rectangle... Can someone explain this to me???

the comment above the pattern says that you use two sizes of hooks for effect yet the pattern says use small size for afghan and only use the large hook for the edging.
