Stella Ripple Afghan Pattern

In honor of my Grandma who made me my Sunny Ripple Afghan 30 some years ago. Here is my interpretation of the pattern in crochet.

Crochet hook size G
Several colors of soft 4 ply worsted yarn (about 20 oz yarn total)

Baby Sized - Chain 152

ROW 1: 2 sc into 2nd ch from the hook. *Sc into next 10 ch, skip 2, sc into each of next 10 chs, 3 sc into next ch, repeat from * 8 more times. Sc in next 10 ch, skip 2, sc in next 10 ch, 2 sc in last ch. Ch 1, turn. (RIGHT SIDE)
Row 2: from now on sc in the back loop of each stitch. 2 sc in first sc, *sc in each of next 10 sc, skip 2 sc, sc in next 10 sc, 3 sc in next sc (which should be the middle of the 3 sc of row 1). Repeat from * 8 more times. Then sc in next 10 sc, skip 2, sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in last sc, ch 1 and turn. Repeat row 2 for the entire afghan.
Repeat Row 2 throughout. Finished blanket should measure about 4' long or desired length. Change colors after every 4 rows or so. This is a very flexible pattern.
I have seen ripples with color changes mid-row.... just depends on the look you want.
