Wavy Ripple Lapghan Pattern

July 24, 2013 7 comments

This is my first wavy ripple project. I was inspired by Attic24 who did one of her beautiful colorful afghans using this stitch design. Here is a closeup of my wavy ripple pattern after I crocheted the stripes for one side of my lapghan.

I set out to crochet my lapghan to fit a person in a wheelchair. I wasn’t sure about the starting chain number of stitches I would need for the lapghan so I ended up doing a chain of 145 stitches for my base row. Well it’s a lot wide than I would have liked at 44 inches so I ended up doing this as a long lapghan that goes down and covers a person’s legs. I crocheted this lapghan working it in rows vertically for a total of 48 rows. I used a Bernat 14 oz pounder-style worst weight yarn in a clay color along with some scrap brown yarn for stripes.

Here is the finished photo of my wheelchair wavy ripple lapghan.
