I get a lot of people who want information on the Sweetheart Ripple.

I was recently asked for the stitch multiples for the other afghans in the book. This enables you to change the size of your project to any size you like. You will just need to stay within the range of the stitch multiple so you won’t need to make alterations to the pattern itself.
The method of reading a stitch multiple is to use any multiple of the first number. I’ll use the Harvest Ripple as an example. If the first number is 25, you can use 25, 50, 75, 100, etc. Once you have your first number, add the second number to it. So, let’s say that we want to use 50. We’ll add 24 to it, for a total beginning chain count of 74.
1. Harvest Ripple Ravelry link | Stitch multiple: 25, plus 24 (any multiple of 25 then add 24)
2. Vanilla Cream Ripple Ravelry link | Stitch multiple: 11, plus 10 (any multiple of 11 then add 10)
3. Brocade Ripple Ravelry link | Stitch multiple: 11, plus 10 (any multiple of 11 then add 10)
4. Bahama Twilight Ripple Ravelry link | Stitch multiple: 17, plus 16 (any multiple of 17 then add 16)
When altering the size of your projects, be aware that your initial chain will not be an indicator of the completed size. With ripples, they tend to scrunch up a lot. The higher the beginning number of the multiple, the more they will scrunch up. Always make a swatch when size is important.
I hope that helps!
