* Afghan is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern is easy to do, but several rows may need to be worked before the ripple pattern becomes clear.
* 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. Fasten off old color.
