I'm working on a round ripple afghan, from Mary Maxim--called Mosaic Afghan.. I haven't done many round ripple afghans, so I'm wondering about something. I'm on Round 9, and using the recommended hook, and have noticed that it is not coming out flat! It isn't curled, like it would if I weren't making enough stitches around, but is kind of...well...the only word I can think of is "lumpy"!!! It looks like the shells have too many dcs in them! But they're only 2dc, ch 2, 2dc--so that surely can't be the problem! Has anyone experienced this? And will it "work itself out" as I continue enlarging it? I like the pattern, so I'm hoping it'll look fine when I'm done! (I think this is why I've avoided round ripples until now.... Thanks for any advice you can give me! I have 3 other projects to work on in the meantime, so I'll just wait for someone's advice!)
I'm just about finished with a 12 point round ripple baby afghan done in Bernat "funny print", I think. There was no label on the yarn, but that seems closest on the website. Here is a picture of a yarn sample. My question is since there is no turning on this afghan (worked all from one side), there is a tendency for it to curl. The pattern does not have an edging, just says to "Cont as established, having 1 more dc between point and valley on each rnd, until work from center to outer point measures 20" [51 cm]. Fasten off." Anyhow, I thought that an edging might help with the curl. Any ideas? This is a Bernat pattern.
Here is another round ripple I have done. It is 70" in dia and I made it for my brother who is a Raiders fan. I kinda used the Lyn's Round Ripple Afghan pattern at http://project-angel-kisses.150m.com/roundripple.html I modifed the 2nd round where instead of 2 dc in ea dc around I did 1dc then 1ch. On the third round I did the 'v' stitches in the ch1 space so that it opened up the stitches better. I got tired of just a circle of dc in the middle. r I also didn't do the 1dc-2ch-1dc every 2 rounds since my afghan didn't get 'wavy'. I only did it at the beginning around the 5th and 7th round and that was all.
