My oldest granddaughter is a member of a Native American dance troupe, and as soon as I saw this project, I thought Dance Blanket. She has either made individual pieces of her ensemble herself, or has traded with others in the community. Shes turning 21 next May (cant believe that!), and this will make the perfect birthday gift for her. Ill have to double check the colors with her mom, but Ill probably swap out the blue for black.

How fun is this blanket! This is just the right thing to take with you to see your fireworks show! Take it to the lake for your 4th of July family BBQ and the kids can sit on it while they are making their s'mores. I am adding this to my "save pattern" tab and get my supplies. Red Heart SUper Saver is cheap and can be had anywhere, really.

Perfect for a 4th of July celebration or any patriotic day celebration. The colors are well-defined with clean ripple lines. I was toying with the idea of making this for Christmas maybe just substitute the blue yarn with green. Thanks for having the pattern right in front for easy access to crocheters.

I think there's a misprint for Row 4 of the Side 1 Ripple Section. It says there should be 288 dc, but there's 72 clusters of 3 dc, meaning there are actually 216 dc. Other than that enjoying this pattern
