Five skeins (or partial skeins) and three snuggles! The bottom right was my return to the ripple pattern. I have tried it in the past and found the depth of the v's that compose the ripple didn't stay crisp so that the far end was much straighter than the starting end. This one, however, doesn't have the problem. What did I do differently? This is bulky yarn! So, I concluded that to keep a sharp "v" the hook needs to be the right size for the yarn or one size smaller. I'll have to try some more ripples to see if my theory holds up!
