I added a border to even out the ripples:

  • 1 round of sc in white and as needed to fill in the valleys of the rippled edges
  • 1 round of hdc in orchid
  • 2 rounds of hdc in amethyst
  • 1 round of sc in purple

I don’t like the way the white shows up so obviously on the sides and next time will use a more neutral color for the first round of the border.

The final size was 42″ x 35″.

Directions for crocheting a straight border on a ripple can be found on the Wires & Yarns blog.
