How many chains if I want to make this afghan bigger?

This White Chocolate Strawberry Double Shell Ripple is pretty. It looks so simple from afar but it looks intricate up close. This will also look good in another color combination.

Hi all. I have a solution for the beginning and end of this afghan. Row 1. Ch 149 dc in 4th ch, 1 dc in next 4 chains follow pattern till last 6 chains, dc in each ch. Turn. Row 2 ch 3 (count as dc) dc 2 tog (work over 2 sts only) dc in next 4 dc, follow pattern until last 7 sts, 1 dc in next 4 dc, dc 2 tog, 1 dc in top chain. Turn. Row 3 ch3 dc 2 tog, dc in nect 4 dc. Follow pattern until last 7 sts, dc in next 4 dc, dc 2 tog, dc in top chain. Hope you understand. Then repeat row 3 for as long as you like..

Beautiful throw. but pattern needs correction. here is the link for corrections. http// == poomom/white-chocolate-strawberry-double-shell-rip == ple

Just finished this afghan. Pattern was spot on. Easy to follow. Worked up easy. I added 2 extra ripple sections on the width and made it longer for a nice cuddle blanket. Can't wait to get more yarn to start another!

I was asked to make an afghan and they requested that I use the colors black, grey purple. I was drawn to this pattern because it used only three colors. Although, the three colors requested weren't appealing to me I wanted to honor their request. I did use this pattern which was without errors and simple to follow and best of all made up quickly and beautifully. However I did add a fourth color, lavender which I think really added to the color pallet and also made it wider and a little longer to make sure it would cover an adult comfortably. Thanks so much for sharing this pattern it was a great afghan to make!

Wow! This is really nice work - thanks for sharing it with everyone!

I'm almost done with my version of this pattern. I used dark blue, light blue, and white. I absolutely love it! It is a very easy pattern and works up quickly. There are no errors in this pattern. I added an extra ripple pattern as instructed to make it a little wider. Thank you for this awesome pattern!

row 2 of this pattern is off, there are 2 shells in the pattern, in beginning of row 2 there is only directions for 1 shell, please correct this thanks

It says Shell in ch 2 space of each Shell, - note the word 'each'. which means since you have 2 shells you do it twice, once in each shell. The pattern appears correct. admittedly the wording in this pattern is not standard jargon and can be a bit confusing.

My version!!

Please can you (or anyone) post some corrections for this pattern? How can you decrease 2 stitches in each row without it being off? It looks a lovely blanket and I'd love to make it but there's clearly problems with the pattern...

I think the decrease works because you are adding three stitches on every chevron so those e tea stitches give you some play when it comes to the decrease.

Each point (or the top of each chevron) is 3 stitches in one. This causes a need for the decrease of 2 stitches per pattern repeat to remain even or 'square'.

Is there a correction available for this pattern

Ch 3, dc dec in next 2 dcs, 1 dc in each of next 4 stitches I understand 'dec' means to decrease, but the instructions don't say how to. I like the pattern and would hate not to make it. Thanks

I also feel the pattern is off. If you keep repeating row 3, you are losing 2stitches every row. Also, in order to place the 3dc on top of the previous ones, you have to skip a stitch before and after the 3dc in the same stitch.

What is ARAN?

this pattern is off, the first row has you ending with 7DC then the next row you only DC in the first 6DC so what do you do with the next 2DCs? i know the 3DC needs to go on top of the previous 3DC but it just dont add up, i think i will pass on this pattern

The chain 3 counts as the first DC in the second row, then DC in the next 6 = 7 DC. Make sense? Hope so.

I agree because you actually have 8 stitches before you get to where you need to put the cluster of 3dc, so pattern is off.
