What size will the finished afghan be please?

Hi sulon, The finished size is 36 x 29 in. (91.5 x 73.5 cm). Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Three balls of yarn will be all you need to make a complete afghan to enjoy these upcoming winter months. With such great neutral colors such as these, it should be pleasing for just about anyone on your gift list this holiday season, too! The ripples are more like calm waves.

I love ripple afghans! One of the first patterns I made way back in the '60s was a ripple. I'm planning on making this in shades of pink for my son and daughter-in-law who just had a baby girl. These instructions are clear and easy to understand.

The perfect afghan for a family room, den, or man cave. The neutral colors of the browns and creams / off whites give it a totally manly look. Would also be a perfect house warming gift for a single guy just getting out on his own or maybe a going away gift for a sons college dorm room.

This Rustic Ripple Crochet Afghan might be just the afghan project that I want to learn the ripple stitch from. I like the color combination of the wheat/dark brown/light brown. Perfect as an anniversary gift or for personal use to delight guests at home. Thanks for the free pattern.

I just made this afghan and I have gotten several compliments on it. It is a very heavy one but it is also simple to do. It only took me about two weeks to complete it and that was only working on it here and there! I will be making this one again for sure!
