In Ripple pattern, work 2 rows A, * 2 rows B, 2 rows C, 2 rows D, 2 rows A; repeat from * for length of Afghan.
Changing Colors: Work across to last st, insert hook in last st and pull up a loop – 2 loops on hook), drop color used for this row, with next color in Stripe Sequence, yarn over, draw through both loops on hook to complete sc.
Chain (ch): Begin by making a slip knot on your hook. * Wrap the yarn around the hook (yarn over) and pull up a loop, [draw the yarn through the loop on the hook to form the first chain]. Repeat from * for number of chains required. Note: The loop on the hook is not included when counting the number of chains.
Single Crochet (sc): Insert hook in stitch indicated, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.

Work even in Stripe Sequence, repeating Row 2 of Ripple patt, until color C has been completely used, ending with 2 rows A—piece measures approximately 36".
