STITCH EXPLANATION

Cl (3 double crochet cluster) Yarn over, insert hook in indicated st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook (2 loops rem on hook), (yarn over, insert hook in same st, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) 2 times (4 loops rem on hook) yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

NOTES

  1. Afghan is worked in two sections using ripple crochet patterns and different striping sequences. The ripple patterns are similar and easy to do, but it’s important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
  2. The ripple pattern consists of alternating peaks and valleys. The peaks are made by working 3 sts or (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) in the center st or ch-sp of the peaks of the previous row. The valleys are made by skipping sts centered over the valleys of the previous row. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. 
  3. The yarn color is changed to make stripes. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. The old color can be fastened off, leaving a long tail to weave in later, or can be carried carefully up side of piece until next needed. If colors not in use are carried up side of piece, take care to hide the carried strands when working the side borders.
  4. Borders are worked onto completed Afghan.
