Crochet Breaking Waves Afghan
Introducing the Crochet Breaking Waves Afghan designed by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd aka me. Inspired by the breaking waves of water on a coastal edge and looking to Caron Big Cakes, Blue Macaroon, I developed a textured look wave afghan.

There was a discrepancy in the repeating which was throwing this pattern out of alignment. Through testing, we realized the stitch repeats are not just 1 wave but 2 waves. You will see that in the diagram provided. It’s due to Row 3 using front and back posts.
The crashing of the waves appears using front and back posts in 1 row every 4th row. Stabilized by the other 3 rows. The colour changes naturally coming out of the yarn ball give the afghan a look of gradation like you are painting the surface of the water onto the afghan.
The stitch multiple is 38 sts +21. So you can change the size of the afghan if you wish by just changing the number of sets of 38 and then add the 21 chains at the end. The changes in the colour make it more interesting to crochet along.
I knew Caron Big Cakes go a long way, yardage wise and it didn’t disappoint. My pattern is available to download the pdf if you wish to try one for yourself.
