The ripples are smaller than the original pattern: The number of stitches is 7 up and 7 down. The original pattern is 11 stitches up and 11 down. The smaller ripple makes it easier to adjust the blanket's width.

LOVE the afghan! You did a great job and what a wonderful way to use up scraps. The colors are wonderful. What a wonderful one of a kind afghan.

Those ripple blankets are some of the coolest afghans i've ever seen!!!! How much time did you spend weaving in ends?

Hi, Alice - Ah, yes, weaving in yarn ends! A tedious task! For many of the change-color-each-row (or every few rows) type blankets I make, I carry the yarn up the side of the blanket. Doing this leaves a loop on the edge, but I try to keep it to 4 inches or less. A finishing touch (after hiding the yarn ends) is to put a border around the blanket. The first border row is single crochet stitches that are made over the loops on the edge so they're captured under the sc stitches. Additional border rows are whatever I think is appropriate for that blanket's design.

Thank you, Heather! I was on a use-up-scrap-yarn kick and was able to trim down the supply of misc. yarns quite a bit since Thanksgiving.
