Although I crocheted it with only three colors and a simple repeated pattern of two-row stripes, this ripple afghan makes a very strong statement!

Edited May 12, 2011 to change name from Red, Purple and Black to Shazam! My thanks to psmflowerlady/Tammy for the wonderful suggestion!
Shazam is defined by The Online Slang Dictionary as “an interjection suggesting something happens automatically or as if by magic”. It was first used in Captain Marvel Comics during the 1930’s, and had nothing to do with genies (see comments, below). Shazam is also the name of an iPhone app, just one of the many things you can learn through Google!
Shazam! It certainly explains the way I feel about making my ripples. I sit and watch the piece of crocheted fabric, in its varied stripes, appear as if by magic from my hook!
