I didn't have any trouble with the count of stitches, but when I started to loop (I started after 3 rows) I didn't like the big hole at the bottom.

I tried making this pattern but when I saterted the row after you have done the chain there wasn't enough stiches it seemed like there was six less sts then I needed to work the pattern correctly. Would youccheck the pattern to see if it is correct. and also do you have the straight Jacobs Ladder pattern?

yes i love ripples patterns

I made this before, but I didn't do it in the ripple pattern, I just went straight across. I made it in pink/blue/white for a baby. It turned out very pretty, but I love the ripple. I think I'll make it in scraps, I love a scrappy look. Lisa in Alabama

I like the Jacob's Ladder because it portrays a simple elegance with a touch of texture. I will definitely make this but might try it in a brighter varigated yarn just to see how it turns out.

I like the Jacob's Ladder because of the center cable, I like that additional detail. On that note, they are both nice.


I think Id make the Jacobs Ladder Ripple Afghan, but I think unless someone I was making it for wanted darker colors Id go with brighter. Not sure which colors, I suppose it would depend on what I had on hand, and if I could afford to buy more yarn. :)

I like this one better. Also, Jacob's ladder comes from the bible. Jacob saw a ladder ascending to heaven in a dream.

I like tis one more than the other one. Even though it is thinner, it can be very warm over you. The other one would be too hot.

I like this one the best
