I would like to thank you all for supporting me while I was learning to write patterns.  Please remember that these are my original free patterns that were written while I was still learning to write them - some are better than others and some have been re-written since learning my new skillset

Amount of yarn needed will depend on the size of the finished afghan.
Special Stitches:
shell - (2dc, ch2, 2dc)
vst - (dc, ch2, dc)

dcdec - yo, insert hook into next st, yo and pull through, yo and pull through 2 loops leaving two loops left on hook, yo and insert hook in next st, yo and pull through, yo and pull through 2 loops, yo and pull through all 3 loops on hook



Instructions:

Round 1 –
ch3, working over tail place 11 dc in first ch made, sl st to top of ch3 to join. Pull tail to close center.

Round 2 –
ch2, turn, dc in same st as ch2, 2dc in each st around, sl st to top of ch2 to join.

Round 3 (For a solid center) –
ch1, turn, Vst in next st, *dcdec over next 2 sts, ch2, dc in same st* 10 times, dcdec over next 2 sts, ch2, dc in same st, (to join the round - begin as you would a dcdec) yo, insert hook into next st, yo and draw thru st, yo and draw thru 2 loops, sl st into ch1 to join and draw thru all 3 loops.
Alternate Round 3 –

Rounds 8 –
completion' Continue working in established pattern (Shell, Vst, Shell) increasing in the shell rounds only.
Make sure that your last round before the border is a shell round.
It gives it a much nicer finished edge.

Border:

Notes – Remember to look at the center of your round ripple. Make sure that the right side is facing.

It really doesn’t matter if you turn your work or not for the sc border so long as the right side is facing.

Round 1 – ch1 turn, (or not) sc in each st, (2sc, ch2, 2sc) in each shell and a ch1 in each valley, sl st to 1st sc to join.

Round 2 – rev sc in each sc except in peaks and valleys.

- To work each Peak: – The shell is (2sc, ch2, 2sc) - rev sc in 1st sc, skip 2nd sc, 2rev sc in ch2 sp, skip 3rd sc, rev sc in 4th sc).

To work each Valley: rev sc down the side towards the valley, skip the last sc, rev sc in the ch1 sp, continue placing a rev sc in each sc until you reach the shell in the Peak.

I don't understand the pattern for the 24-point ripple afghan. Can someone help me with row 3.

Jonasangel1 said...

Sorry that should have read 12-point afghan. Please help me with row 3. what is dcdec? It doesn't say anywhere in the pattern.

Michele said...

I added the directions on how to do a dcdec to the pattern.

A dcdec is when you change 2 dcs to a single dc by working over both stitches.

If the stitch directions don't help you can always do alternate Row 3 which is a Vst.

Hi! Thank you for posting this free crochet pattern. It is by far my favorite round ripple. I have made a few of these and I just included a link to this page in my most recent blog post http://artsydaisycrochet.blogspot.com/2016/06/blankets-galore.html
Have a great day!! Dianna

Thanks for the beautiful pattern, love it, but is it USA or UK terms?
