Hey there, Colin here! I have been working on this blog of ours, behind the scenes so to speak. I do the proof reading and corrections and of course the tasting of all the recipes. I love our blog and now will be posting crafts that are fun and easy to make.
This is a classic afghan design that is sure to impress and add a touch of beauty to your decor. This afghan can be made in any colour pallet you choose, use your imagination, get creative and enjoy! I used leftover yarns I had to make this one, and used a worsted weight yarn (about 1600 grams for largest size) requiring a 5 mm crocheting hook. If you don’t know some of the stitches you can find them on you tube. I will be sharing some of my patterns with this amazing site ( https://www.allfreecrochetafghanpatterns.com ) Take time to check them out, they have tons of cool projects.
Rippled Afghan Pattern Directions:
This is made in multiples of 16 stitches plus 2.
To start: chain 130, 146, 162, or 178 (or however many chains you want for the width of afghan you want)
Row 1: Make a double crochet in the 3rd chain.
Then work *double crochets in next 6 chains, then work 3 double crochets in next chain, then work double crochets in next 6 chains, then work a 3 stitch double crochet decrease in next 3 chains*. Repeat * to * until last 2 stitches, then work a 2 stitch double crochet decrease, then chain 2 and turn.
Row 2: On the second row you skip the first stitch and work 7 double crochets (in the back loops only) in the previous row of double crochets, then work 3 double crochets in next double crochet (it is the middle double crochet of the 3 double crochets in the previous row) then *work 6 double crochets, then work a 3 stitch double crochet decrease, then work 6 double crochets, then work 3 double crochets in next double crochet* Repeat *to* until last 2 stitches, then work a 2 stitch double crochet decrease, then chain 2 and turn.
Continue to work row 2 only, until you have the length of afghan you want. If you are using multiple colours, make sure when you cut the yarn colour you are working with, it is long enough to weave into the back of the afghan.
I hope you enjoy making this project as much as I did.
