    Hi alclo I don't have anything, to make a video with, sorry, I do hope that someone, can help you, I learned to crochet, by buying, the crochet booklets about different crochet stitches, there should also, be crochet stitch abbreviations too, if you search online, about different abbrediations, tthere are videos, that will show you step by step https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video;_ylt=AwrTHRmAQhJaW3sAfRxXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTByNWU4cGh1BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=crochet+stitch+abbreviations+for+beginner&fr=yfp-t-s

  8. I wrote this pattern myself, I worked on one and wrote it, as crocheted it!! 16-Point Round Ripple Afghan *I use an "H "size hook, & 4-ply worsted weight acrylic yarn Row 1: CH 5, slip stitch to form a ring, then, Chain 3(chain 3 always counts as a DC stitch) DC 15 in the ring (16 st.) Row 2: CH 3 + 1 DC in the same stitch as the CH 3; 2 DC in each stitch all the way around, SL. ST. to join (32 stitches) Row 3: CH 3, * 1 DC in the next stitch, 1 DC + 2 CH + 1 DC in next stitch: Repeat from * ending with 1 DC in next stitch, then, 1 DC in base of the Beg CH 3 + CH 2( so you make 3 chains plus 2 more chains), join to the top of the Beg CH 3, (this completes the V-Stitch or small shell which ever you want to call it!)(the extra CH 2 is the tips chain 2 space) Row 4: SL ST in next stitch, SL ST into the chain 2 space, & CH 3 + 1 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in same chain 2 space. *2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in next chain 2 space. * Repeat all the way around & SL ST in ch3 of the beginning chain, then, SL ST in next 2 DC, Row 5: SL ST in chain 2 space & CH 3 + 1 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in same chain 2 space, 1 DC in next DC, skip next 2 DC, then 1 DC in next DC, *2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in next chain 2 space; 1 DC in next DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next DC, *repeat all the way around, SL. ST. in chain 3 of beginning chain, then SL ST in next 2 DC. Row 6: SL ST in chain 2 space + CH 3 + 1 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in same chain 2 space; 1 DC in each of next 2 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in each of next 2 DC; *2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in next chain 2 space; 1 DC in next 2 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next 2 DC: *Repeat ending with skip 1 DC; join to the 3 CH( this is the 3rd chain up at the top) Row 7: SL ST in next DC, SL ST in the tips chain 2 space + CH 3 +CH 2 (this is for the tips chain 2 space) + 1 DC in same space; 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; *1 DC + 2 CH + 1 DC in next CH 2 space. 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; *Repeat around, skip last DC & join in 3rd CH of beginning chain; Row 8: SL ST in next DC ( if there is an extra DC stitch slip stitch in the extra DC also); SL ST in tips chain 2 space + CH 3 + 1 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in same CH 2 space; 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; *2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in tips chain 2 space; 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip next 2 DC; 3 DC in next 3 DC; *Repeat around, join in 3rd CH of beg. chain. SL ST in next DC. Row 9: Sl St in tips chain 2 space + CH 3 +1 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; * 2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC in chain 2 space; 1 DC in next 3 DC; skip next 2 DC; 1 DC in next 3 DC; *Repeat around *small shell row: (1 DC+ 2 CH + 1 DC) *large shell row: (2 DC + 2 CH + 2 DC) ** change colors, slip stitch in the tips ch 2 space, just after you have completed the last row, cut off the yarn so you have a long enough tail to work with, then tie it into a knot, in the tips space. **To add the new color, tie the yarn to the right of the knot you just made in the tip. Slip Stitch & chain 3 in the tip.......... **It seemed a lot easier to change colors when you are just going to a large shell row, because there is more yarn to cover up the knots, ***** While you are making this or any round ripple afghan, it really helps to lay it down on a flat surface, & flatten it out a lot as you're making it.. ***** This pattern is done with 1 row of small shells in the tips, and 2 rows of large shells in the tips. As it gets bigger, it helps to flatten it out, because of the afghan's weight... **** To start out with, I would recommend using 3 skeins for each color, but it depends on how many different colors you're using to make it.

    Lets Do A Round Ripple Together

    Happy Day Everyone:clap It's been quite a while since I've been in here, just about the time that I was doing pretty well, I fell in our bedroom, and hurt my back, that was the frst part of Feb., the really bad part of all of it, was I couldn't even crochet, because it was too much stress on my back:eek I'm doing pretty good now,finally..LOL I started a 3 shade purple round ripple, and in-between I'll crochet in a multi-colored yarn!! I'm making this one for one of our daughter-in-laws, Lori is about 6 Ft. tall, so it has to be a big one!!!! Take Care and Have a lovely Evening:hook
