Radiating Ripple Throw

Use three color families and a total of 17 different hues to crochet the Radiating Ripple Throw. Though that number seems extreme, it's only because this pattern requires you to change colors so often to achieve the gorgeous gradient effect - you can just as easily crochet this ripple blanket with one color family and far few colors of yarn to achieve a similar effect. This easy crochet pattern is worked in a fun ripple crochet stitch that's easy to master, so once you've gotten the hang of the pattern, you'll be amazed by how quickly you finish!

Notes:
1. Throw is made in a ripple pattern which consists of a series of 3-dc “peaks” and dc3tog “valleys”, with 6 dc worked between peaks and valleys. You may need to work several rows before the ripple is clearly visible.
2. Following color sequence, change color at beginning of each odd-numbered row
3. Color sequence = A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, and Q
