Sweetheart Ripple Afghan CAL

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I just started the afghan and not sure if I am doing the 5th row correctly. When you start the fptr-sc are you going down 3 rows and not 2 rows (are you actually doing this stitch in the lighter purple - deep plum heather) and when it says to do the fptr-sc twice are you doing it in two different stitches below and when you sk 2 sts and then doing fptr-sc twice again it seems like the doing the 3 sc will be off. After I get how to do this row, I am sure the afghan will go pretty fast. Really like the pattern.

 

Thanks for your help.

Linda, I'm sorry I didn't see your message sooner. But, if you are still having problems, you may be able to get all your answers in the video tutorial I did for the stitch:

Rippleaddiction, I just started mine, albeit a month later than you asked! Are you still working on it? There's a CAL that started recently for this in Ravelry. Here's a link:

There have been some helpful comments so far, though no one's posted much since I posted a few times trying to work out my confusion, heh.

This is the correct number of starting chains. If you are lacking stitches, it could be because, when you put multiple stitches into a chain, it squeezes the chain together and you miss the next chain, not realizing that it's there. That's the usual culprit.

If you're having trouble with placement, there is a really nice photo I posted showing which stitches to skip earlier in this topic. Hope it helps!

The picture kind of helped. I've been wanting to do this blanket since I was pregnant with my son so I'm not giving up until I figure it out. I'm doing a smaller baby blanket by chaining less. :) Thanks so much for all your help and I will post as soon as I figure it out.

This is not uncommon. You aren't following the diagonal of the ripple.

The stitches are straight down, at the diagonal angle. There will be three skipped stitches where I have circled in this photo. Right now, you have no skipped stitches there. You'll need to move them over.

I think you are spot on. Hard to see to the side like that. But, I'm pretty sure it's exactly correct.

I'm sure it will work out, but just in case... I wanted to let you know that I'm going to be with limited internet access from Tuesday through Saturday. I may not have it at all. I'm unsure right now. So, if you write, and I don't respond immediately, you'll know why. :)
