For those of you who would like to know the details:

Portland Ripple is made from Lucy at Attic24’s Neat Ripple Pattern

http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html

Using Stylecraft Special DK , acrylic machine washable yarn and a  4.5mm hook

It uses Multiples of 14 sts plus 3 for turning.             12 x 14 = 168 +3 = 171

So chain 171 as the foundation row.

I really don’t like counting chain stitches, so I usually just chain about the width I want the finished piece to be, and then do about 10 more chains and start on the pattern – any chains left over, I simple unpick before sewing the end in.

This is my random colour order, 2 rows for each colour:

1 – 10:       Lime, Parchment, White, Aster, Silver, Cream, Parchment, Lime, Meadow, Aspen,

11 – 20:     Silver, White, Parchment, Cream, Aster, Aspen, Lime, Cloud Blue, Silver, Parchment,

21 – 30:     Cream, White, Aspen, Aster, Cloud Blue, Meadow, Parchment, Lime, Silver, Cream,

31 – 40:     Aster, White, Cloud Blue, Parchment, Aspen, Meadow, Silver, Aster, Cream, Lime,

41 – 50:     Cloud Blue, White, Aspen, Meadow, Lime, Parchment, Cloud Blue, Cream, Aster, Lime.

My finished throw measures   104cm (40.5”) wide x 130cm (51”) long

The boys seem to like it! – what do you think?
