Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 6 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in ripple pattern. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc3tog (dc decrease 2 sts) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. (Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook 2 sts decreased.

NOTES:

1. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete st. Fasten off old color.
2. The ripple in this Afghan is created by working dc3tog to form 'valleys' and working 3 dc all in one st to form 'peaks'. In each row, take care to work dc3tog over the 3 sts in each 'valley' and 3 dc in the center dc of each 'peak.' You may wish to use stitch markers to mark each peak.
3. The ripple pattern may not be evident in the first couple of rows. Continue to work rows, as instructed, and the ripple pattern will become more obvious.
