Project Instructions

Step: 1

Size

About 48 x 60 inches (112 x 152.5 cm)


Step: 2

Gauge

13 sts + 6 rows = 4 inches (10cm) in ripple pattern. Be sure to check your gauge.


Step: 3

Stitch Explanation

dc3tog (dc 3 together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook – 2 sts decreased.


Step: 4

Color Sequence

*Work 2 rows each with A, B, C; rep from * for Color Sequence.


Step: 5

Notes

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st.
The ripple in this design is created by working dc3tog to form “valleys” and working 3 dc all in one st to form “peaks.” In each row, take care to work dc3tog over the 3 sts in each “valley” and 3 dc in the center dc of each “peak.”
The ripple pattern may not be evident in the first few rows. Continue to work rows, as instructed, and the ripple pattern will become more obvious.


Step: 6

Throw

With A, ch 159.


Step: 7

Row 1: Dc in 3rd ch from hook, *dc in next 4 ch, dc3tog, dc in next 4 ch, 3 dc in next ch; rep from * 11 more times, dc in next 4 ch, dc3tog, dc in next 4 ch, 2 dc in last ch – 13 ripples.


Step: 8

Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in first dc, *dc in next 4 dc, dc3tog, dc in next 4 dc, 3 dc in next dc; rep from * 11 more times, dc in next 4 dc, dc3tog, dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in top of turning ch.


Step: 9

Continuing in Color Sequence, rep Row 2 until Throw measures about 60 inches (152.5 cm) from beginning, end with 2 rows of C. Fasten off.
