This is another challenging project. If I were to do it, I'd go for vibrant colors, earth of pastels. Pastels if it will be given to a baby girl or baby boy.

i can't download this pattern. Has it been moved?

Hi Yarned Over, The blog was experiencing issues yesterday, but the pattern is back up today. Happy crocheting! --Kaitlin, AFCAP Editor

Wow, I love this new twist on the Ribbed Ripple Reversible Afghan. The fptr adds a really nice looking texture! I like that this ripple afghan is a one row repeat, and not a 2 row repeat. I have this one on my must make list of many,, but feel this may be my new go to ripple stitch pattern from now on. I like that there is a chart for different sizes, taking the guess work out of it. The video tutorial is well done as well which helps for the visual learner. I just love this one! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

how many stitches do you chain for the extra large?

I am currently making this pattern in blues and whites and it looks like snowflakes almost. It is light and airy but very warm. Thank you for the wonderful pattern. My brother is going to love it!!

For Carol Joan or anyone who wants to make a different size afghan than the original pattern's size. THIS IS FOR PATTERNS WHICH USE ONLY ONE TYPE OF YARN. If you don't mind doing some math (use a calculator, I always do), the following calculations have always worked for me. First determine the square inches of each afghan. Multiply the length and width of each size afghan. In this case 35" x 45" = 1,575 square inches; and the size you want to make is 48" x 58" = 2,784 square inches. Subtract these two numbers to get the difference, in this case 1,209 sq. inches. Now divide 1,209 by 1,575 - that gives you 0.7676 or 76.76% additional yarn needed. To be "safe" I round off, in this case that's 77% more yarn. You're almost done! Now multiply the number of skeins required for the original size afghan by, in this case, 177%. So if the original size pattern called for 10 skeins it would be 10 X 177 which equals a total of 17.7 (18) skeins for the size afghan you want to make. Why 177% ?? Because you are ADDING the original yarn requirement (100%) to the additional yarn needed (77%) for the size you want to make. This gives you the TOTAL yarn you need for the size you want to make. Write these numbers down on a sticky note and put it on the front of your printed pattern (even if it's in a book) so you you'll never have to re-calculate if you ever want to make that size afghan again. Hope this explanation wasn't too confusing and that it helps you figure yarn requirements for sizes other than what the original pattern calls for.

How could a person choose ???????????? I love them both........

I prefer this pattern over the Jacobs Ladder, and if I didn't make it in the same colors, then I'd still use soft colors for this afghan. The only thing that you should have included in this pattern is the amount of yarn needed for the two larger sizes given. The 35"X45" is a good size for a baby, so now how much do we need for the larger sizes as I'd like to make one of them.

I would crochet this one. It look more interesting and challenging as a crochet project and I think it would be beautiful in a bright colour like yellow, mint green or pale blue.

I'd make the ribbed ripple-I like that it is a little different. But I would use different colors. Maybe shades of rose....?

I like this one because it appears to be comfy and very warm.

I like this one...soft and comfy looking...gentle like..hard to explain...

I love the texture of this pattern
