My finished Ripple Afghan. The specs: Neat ripple pattern by Attic24 (attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html). 14 skeins of Plymouth Encore poly/wool blend yarn. 56 stripes (the red/orange stripe counting as one). I just barely got four stripes per skein. My starting chain was 214 stitches. Final size was 57" square. It's wider than necessary for a lap blanket. It seemed right when I started but it gained width as I added stripes. Odd. The length is good.
