Blue Round Ripple Afghan

Posted on April 17, 2009

Blue Round Ripple

Here is my first full-sized round ripple or RR as most crocheters refer to this wonderfully shaped afghan. This was crocheted using Aggie May’s RR pattern from Crochetville. I used some scrap yarn and added some Red Heart Super Saver skeins to complete my RR. This is going to be a gift for my Mother’s upcoming birthday. I know it’s not a recycled bag but I just wanted to share my RR as it was so much fun to crochet!

I added the edging as shown above to my completed RR. The edging was done by repeating the following stitches:
Ch 3, double crochet (Dc) in same stitch, then skipping one stitch and slip stitching (sl st) in the next stitch. Just keep repeating around your RR evenly. Make sure that the Ch 3, Dc are always at the top point of the ripple. You may have to skip two stitches occasionally to get it even especially at the top points.

    Beautiful! It will be a wonderful birthday present.

    Lynne… I think there are patterns for round afghans. I think if you google Pi knitting afghan you will find it.

    You obtain the pattern from Colleen aka Aggie May over at Crochetville. You just need to ask her to email the pattern to you and agree not to distribute yourself etc.
