Beach bums will love this fun and simple Sun and Sand Afghan from Roseanna Beck.  With the soft summer shades of sand, surf, and sunshine, this crochet ripple afghan pattern is light and airy and is great for a year round throw.  The soft colors of this afghan also make it a great gift for a new baby boy.  This is an easy enough pattern for a beginner and a fun crochet pattern for anyone who's looking for something fun to make!

I am working on the afghan called Sun and Surf. If I am understanding the directions for row two the repeats do not align with the first row. I seem to be off by three spaces. When I start row two I finish the dc skip one sequence beneath the last of the dc 3 in each of last 4 dc stitches. I have restarted this afghan 5 times and the outcome is the same. I hope you understand what I am trying to explain to you. I have looked as closely as I can and have recounted my spaces. Can I expect the same thing to happen in row three of the pattern? I did try adding an extra dc at the end of the row and that was not correct. I may be correct in my understanding of this pattern, I am a beginner but just need to know if I am working this pattern correctly. Any help you provide is greatly appreciated. DT
