Hi all- I'm knew to crochet. I've tried several times over the last few years to learn, but always ended up frustrated - not able to read the patterns. I decided to call it quits until I stumbled onto this website and was inspired by all the beautiful ripples. I pulled out yarn from my stash of incomplete (knitting and crochet projects) and am raring to go.
I have a question for all of you that have used the easy ripple pattern. When you get to the end of the chain/row do you complete six dc before you dec2? I chained 178 and when I got to the end of the chain I dc 6 then 3 dc in next chain and then decreased the last 2 stitches. Does that sound right?
This is my second attempt, I ripped out my first because after the 3rd color change my rows weren't lining up. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
