Not done the ripple sorry!
Doesn't her tutorial give a loose calculation?

I can sew on a button, that's about the extent of my crafting ability ;)

the one i just finished was 122cm wide which was 185 stitches wide in dk ( from my workings ). i basically carried on doing a foundation chain till it was roughly the length i wanted then added more till there was enough for the pattern (has to be multiples of 14 + an extra 3 for turning )

Mine is in 8ply (is this DK or a bit bigger, sorry I always get confused with the English words!) Mine is 102 cm wide and 165/6 stitches - I'm using a size 5 hook and I think I'm quite a tight crocheter! I hope that helps @docmaggoo

This was my plan of attack too!!!

I can't believe how quickly you must work @girlinleeds I'd thought yours must be smaller than mine to have got it finished so quickly. I have to win slowest crocheter in the world prize :giggle: :giggle:

@clothmama having a small child nagging constantly helps, plus I have new wool so wanted to start something else so made myself sit down and finish it
