Ripple Afghan: Finished

Ripple Afghan, originally uploaded by Umzavi.

I did it! I finished the Ripple Afghan.

The specs:

Neat ripple pattern by Attic24.
14 skeins of Plymouth Encore poly/wool blend yarn.
56 stripes (the red/orange stripe counting as one).
Barely 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. And now it’s done just in time for the two hottest months of the year!
