I'm trying to include a picture of the afghan I'm trying to find directions for, it's a ripple and looks like trees. Seen it in green shades and blue shades.

Hello, I am a beginner. Dc is double crochet but what is dcs?

I made this afghan. It was:-) fun to make and is just plain pretty.

I apologize. I just saw what the multiple is for this afghan. I plan to make it soon.

I am an avid Roseanna Beck follower. I see that now she's putting a note in that gives the multiples so we can make her afghans to the size of our liking. I think that's great and that every designer should do that when possible.... Sue N.
