INSTRUCTIONS

Notes:
1. Throw is made in a ripple pattern which consists, in some rows, of a series of (shell, ch 2, shell) “peaks” and 2-cluster “valleys”, with a shell worked between peaks and valleys. You may need to work several rows before the ripple is clearly visible.
2. 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. Cut old color. Optional: carry A along wrong side of piece until next needed.
3. For a neater appearance, work border over carried yarn and tails to minimize weaving in ends.

Special Stitches:

Beg dc2tog (beginning double crochet decrease) = Ch 2, dc in next stitch.
Cl (cluster) = Yarn over, insert hook in indicated stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops remain on hook); [yarn over, insert hook in same stitch or space, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] twice, yarn over, draw through all 4 loops on hook.
dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] twice, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
dc2tog-over-3 = *Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops*, skip next st; repeat from * to *, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
sc2tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
sc2tog-over-3 = *Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop*, skip next st; repeat from * to *, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
shell = 3 dc in indicated stitch or space.

This Holiday Ripple Throw is a very beautiful gift this Christmas to someone special. The recipient will treasure this for as long a she lives. This is a work of art and hand made so it's really special.

I typical do not crochet holiday themed patterns because it seems like a lot of work to only have it out for a few weeks of the year. However, I think this pattern would be super cute substituting different colors for the red and gray. And then I could keep it on my couch year round.

Holy moly, I'm practically tasting the candy canes in my mouth right now! Wouldn't it be a treat to find this waiting under your Christmas tree!

A perfect blanket for Christmas morning. Better start it now!
