This looks like the perfect blanket to throw over your lap when it's just a little chilly in the fall.

I like the pattern on this throw. I also like the fact that the needles are not too large. Solid color yarn is better for this pattern. Thank you.

This is just so beautiful - and what's even better, can be made smaller (doll) or larger. BUT - question - I've made ripple designs before - and this is a gorgeous ripple - how do you get that design with that pattern? I see no yo's or K2Tog's! I'm going to start out with a wash-cloth size, but please please respond! I just love it!

I actually thought that it was the wrong picture with the pattern, but on closer inspection on the red heart site I realized that the 6 knit row band is on the side, so the waves/ripples are created by knitting up not across. Happy knitting.

Yes, I had the same thought too, it is not like other ripple patterns I have seen. Then as I read over the pattern I realized that because you use a chunky or bulky yarn, the purl stitches in each row form a raised pattern. So as you progress up the afghan the purl "bumps" will form the ripple pattern. Pinned this one!
