My current project is another Neat Ripple Afghan that someone commissioned me to make. The yarn was provided along with the pattern request of wavy stripes, so that's what she's getting. As to the particulars, I started out with a beginning ch of 140 plus 3 for turning. The yarn is all Red Heart Super Saver in the colors Camouflage, Black and Buff. I'm using a size I crochet hook. The pattern is called the Neat Ripple pattern on Attic 24's blog. You can find it by clicking here.
