There is a must be AV error in row 7 in this patten. I have counted and repeated this row. It will not come out right right as written. HELP Glenda

I absolutely love the colours chosen for this afghan. The ripple design really accentuates them too. I have never knitted a ripple afghan before, but this one is so pretty I think I might try. The pattern looks very easy to follow and complete. Thank you for sharing this with us.

I love chevron patterns, and the afghan is a beauty! I like how the garter rows in between the pattern rows give it texture and sort of outline the color sections. Patons Canadiana is a worsted weight 4 yarn so I could substitute with worsted yarn I have on hand. This would make a fabulous gift for someone!

You are going to do the two row pattern rows where it says to stocking stitch and you will straight knit where it says to garter stitch. so like this: A-10 pattern rows, B-4 pattern rows, A -4 rows knit, C-8 pattern rows, D-6 pattern rows, C-4 rows knit, E-12 pattern rows, F-6 pattern rows, E-4 rows knit, B-10 pattern rows, A-10 pattern rows, B-4 rows knit, D-8 pattern rows, c-6 pattern rows, D-4 rows knit, F-12 pattern rows, e- 6 pattern rows, F- 4 knit rows.

Thanks I think I have it figured out. I will give it a try Priscilla
