OK.. This ugly thing needs to be explained. I started doing a simple ripple pattern. 4 DC, Increase twice, DC 4, Decrease twice. Except the pattern kept getting screwy and the increases and decreases weren't lining up. So I finally gave up but I had to move and didn't have time to start over. So I decided to forget the ripples. But then, I thought that would be so ugly, but I didn't have time to frog and restart, so I knew I would frog it when it was done to reuse the yarn for something nice. So why cut it up into small pieces? So that's why there's those blocks of color instead of 2 row stripes. So silly, I know, but I need that Wollmeise!
