"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

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!
