GAUGE

One ripple = 5 1/2" (14 cm) measured from peak to peak.

Change hook size to obtain correct gauge.

SPECIAL STITCH

Cl (cluster): Yarn over, insert hook in indicated ch or sp and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook, *yarn over, insert hook in same ch or sp and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook; rep from * once more, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.

STRIPE SEQUENCE

Work 2 rows with A, 2 rows with B, 4 rows with C, 2 rows with D, 4 rows with E, 4 rows with F, 8 rows with C, 2 rows with D, 4 rows with G, 4 rows with H, 2 rows with C, 4 rows with H, 4 rows with G, 2 rows with D, 8 rows with C, 4 rows with F, 4 rows with E, 2 rows with D, 4 rows with C, 2 rows with B, 2 rows with A.

NOTES

The ripple pattern is easy to do, but you may need to work several rows before pattern becomes clear.

Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each row aligned. (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) shells are worked into the ch-3 sp peaks, and a sp is skipped at valleys.

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st. Fasten off old color.
