Finally after practicing on several pieces and drawing a diagram to follow I started crocheting another bench cover using Jan Eaton's "Bobble Zigzags" ripple stitch.
I'm using Lily Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn that I have on hand in Spring flower colors and a J hook.
The top area of my bench seat is 30 inches by 21 inches. My foundation chain is 112 plus 2 stitches (pattern repeat is 16 plus 2) so I'm repeating the pattern seven times.
This is a fun stitch and not really hard - it just takes me a while to get the stitch right on ripple patterns.
The most important thing is to make sure the foundation chain is correct as that is the basis that the pattern is built upon.
I told you it would be colorful!
Well, I better get back to crocheting.
It's a beautiful Spring day here with the sun shining!
