So lovely this Naptime Ripple Baby Afghan is so lovely. It's a simple ripple crochet stitch but with a twist. The spaces left in every block made the difference. Can't wait to make this blanket.

So pretty and is the baby in the photo not so CUTE? My life is in the midst of baby season at the moment with several friends having brought gorgeous little ones into this world so this lovely pattern is very welcome at this time. I have already completed one using a single color, a lovely soft white, and am about to start another using colors very similar to those shown. The pattern is super easy to follow and I certainly recommend it to everyone.

totally confused by the directions for the edging....

Hi asmooch, The directions for the edging are as follows: "With right side facing and D, work around posts of sts along side edge as follows: Row 1 (right side): Join yarn to upper corner of straight edge, ch 2, work 2 sc around post of tr,*2 sc around post of dc, 3 sc around post of tr; repeat from * across, turn. Row 2: Ch 2, work slip st in each sc evenly across to first ch-2. Cut yarn. Fasten off. Repeat border on opposite edge. Weave in ends." - You work around the post of the stitch, not into the top of the stitch, and you repeat the part in between the asterisks all the way down to the end of the row. Thanks!

I cannot seem to get a straight side at the of row 1. 2 tr in last 3 dc. The other side looks straight HELP!
