Granny Square Ripple Afghan


make a granny square basic motif.... the rows on either side of the granny squares will be worked according to the design you choose for your granny squares.

the granny squares will be on point, and this is how you make each side of the granny squares....
Join yarn with a sl st in first corner of any ch-2 space, ch 1, *[skip next sc, dc in next sc, (ch1, dc in next sc) 6 times, ch 1, skip next sc, (dc, ch3, dc) in next ch-2 space, ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next sc, (ch 1, dc in next sc) 6 times], ch 1, skip next sc, dc in next 2 ch sps tog, ch 1; repeat from * across 7 more times; repeat between [ ], skip next sc, dc in last ch-2 sp, turn, fasten off (154 dc).

each row is made by chaining three and turning, working back across, doing (dc, ch 3, dc) in each corner at the top, and skipping in the valleys, just like you do a ripple afghan...

you can do these borders, either dc or sc, your choice....if you want more than one strip of granny squares, I would suggest joining the next granny squares as you do your ch 1 (s).... do a ch 1, slip stitch in the corresponding opposite granny square dc, ch 1... this will create a flat work between your rows....

the example I saw was just one strip of granny squares with borders worked out from that as a center, but with a little work, you can put in as many squares as you would like... but FIRST make your squares so you will know how to attach your first rows, etc....

if you need more instruction, let me know and I will work up a sample... one of the things I was thinking of also, was when you do the last row of your granny square, rather than do the three dc in each space, you might want to do a dc in each dc and each space, but keep your corners with the ch 2 for the squaring of it....
