Picture of Giant Ripple Afghan

This was my first afghan I had ever made. I made it with the intent as a gift for a friend and he absolutely loved it in the end. It was my first attempt at both an afghan and the ripple pattern. I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn (this is how I fell in love with Red Heart yarn for afghans), and a size K crochet hook. The entire pattern is double crochet, with 4 rows of each color, repeated 8 times. Total = 128 rows and approximately 32,000 stitches. I was proud enough of my afghan to attempt to calculate that, ha! It measures 68.5" x 90" so it is quite large and even fits on a king sized bed. I added tassles on each "peak" on both ends of the afghan, containing one strand of each color, and added a black edging around the afghan. The pattern is homemade, but I found a very helpful formula to generate the correct number of stitches for my foundation chain. I found it at pumamouse.com labeled as the ripple formula. Extremely useful for all ripple patterns!

Would you happen to have your pattern for this afghan, and how much yarn you need handy? I love it! And I'd like to give it a shot. :) Sadly the pumamouse.com website is down.

The blanket was described by my friend as being "mad warm." :-)
