Monday's Link for Free Crochet Pattern

Today's pattern is for one version of the classic ripple afghan.  Easy to make and always appreciated.  Hope you enjoy.  I've made a few of this style, the first was a baby one before my first son was born almost 32 years ago.  I had saved it but my ex husband wouldn't let me have it because he kept it to use for the daughter he and his second wife had!  Hugs...
