This puts me in the mind of the ripple. It is different but kinds of the same. I like design elements but I do not feel like I could complete a project like this without my eyes going "kookie".

I like the look of this Zippy Zag Zag Lapghan. The colors and the stitches are great looking. This pattern is well written and easy to follow. It's crazy but I don't have a K hook, so off to Jo-Ann's to buy be the hook and yarn for this beautiful lapghan. I'm looking forward to getting started on this one! I like the way the treble cluster stitches work and look, plus it's not that hard to make. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Looks like fun and very unique.
