Ripple Quick Baby Afghan  

Exchange to crochet

This is a really simple knitted ripple pattern.  I found it in a quick knit baby afghan book.  The pattern calls for double knitting weight yarn. 

Size 15 circular needles.  Finished size is 33"x46". 

Two different colors are used. 9 ½ ounces  (895 yards) of each color.

Afghan is made holding one strand of each color together.  I am using worsted weight yarn and size 15 needles.  This is making it bigger for me. I am also using three colors and variegating the yarns as I go along.  Good luck!!  LBN1972@aol.com
