help?

I probably should have started simple with my first crochet project. A small scarf, or even just a few granny squares. No. I want to make a ripple blanket. 0.o all this counting is driving me insane....

Keep having fun ha ha... I too hate the counting bit that is why I guess I never took to crochet. But I hope to put that right slowly.

I do excessive amounts of crocheting of blankets, toys, slippers, etc.... But after trying a ripple pattern that's what I always look like too! I've yet to succeed at one. Good luck;-)

How funny....I'm in the midst of a ripple blanket too although me thinks I'm a little bit further along than you are. hehehe I find the only major counting is in the first row of chain stitches....once the pattern is established, you just eyeball the change in stitches. Persevere...you can do it, Jennifer.

Hi Jennifer,

Here's a link to a great post explanation of the ripple design if you're interested. It helped me get the basics. http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html
