Rounds 8 –
completion' Continue working in established pattern (Shell, Vst, Shell) increasing in the shell rounds only.

Make sure that your last round before the border is a shell round.
It gives it a much nicer finished edge.

Border:

Notes – Remember to look at the center of your round ripple. Make sure that the right side is facing.

It really doesn’t matter if you turn your work or not for the sc border so long as the right side is facing.

Round 1 – ch1 turn, (or not) sc in each st, (2sc, ch2, 2sc) in each shell and a ch1 in each valley, sl st to 1st sc to join.

Round 2 – rev sc in each sc except in peaks and valleys.

- To work each Peak: – The shell is (2sc, ch2, 2sc) - rev sc in 1st sc, skip 2nd sc, 2rev sc in ch2 sp, skip 3rd sc, rev sc in 4th sc).

To work each Valley: rev sc down the side towards the valley, skip the last sc, rev sc in the ch1 sp, continue placing a rev sc in each sc until you reach the shell in the Peak.

  6. I just wanted to thank you for this pattern. I had tried 4 or 5 other ripple patterns and their methods always left a lot of bunches after 8 rows or so. This one works out perfectly. I don't know if it's your alternating rows of V-stitches and shells or if it's your method of joining and turning after each round. (Your join method leaves an almost invisible seam). But I'm 30 or so rows into what is going to be a large afghan and it's laying perfectly flat. Thank you so very much!
