    That is gorgeous! I plan on making one after the Ocean Waves with Big Cakes is finished.

    I’ve also noticed that the Big Cakes and Tea Cakes are on clearance at Michael’s. They’re not getting discontinued, are they?! I wanted to get a bunch of the Tea Cakes..

      Not that I am aware of. I’ve not heard anything about discontinuing any of the Caron Cakes Products. Michaels is most likely cycling through stock.

    Mikey, please update your PDF file to reflect multiples of 19 instead of 18. I, too, have frogged mine 3 times thinking I had done something wrong. I love the look of this pattern but not the frustration. Thanks!

      I am having a horrible time with this pattern. I have tried twice and frogged each one. Your chart is also off kilter. I am going to try and design my own from this as I am getting very frudtrated. Your afghan patterns are always a “goto” for me but this one has just about worn out what patience I have left for it.

    What am I missing? My starting chain was 209. I have 12 waves, not 11 and extra chains leftover. I have tried this 3 times with the same result. My 5 dc in next 2 ch look like this (oo) next to each other. Is that normal? Someone please help!!

      Tanya I have the exact same problem as you….I started with 209 chains and I have 12 waves and several extra chains leftover. Any luck figuring this out?

          Hi Mikey! I absolutely adore this pattern but isnt 19 x 11 equal to 209? And are there any extra stitches added to that? Thanks again for such a beautiful pattern! Penny

    Hi Mikey! Watched the tutorial and what you show doesn’t match the pattern. Pattern doesn’t state to skip a space before and after the groups of 5 dc but you show it in your tutorial. This may be why my stitch count is off. Can you clarify! Thanks,
    Alison

    So glad to read all these comments. I’m also having an issue with the pattern right from the start. The numbers do not work out correctly. I’ve been reading patterns for many, many years and do find mistakes in them, so I’m aware this happens, but would appreciate it being corrected.

    I think is afghan is beautiful. I am also ha having an issue with it pattern. (That has never happened with any pattern I have used from your website before, so maybe it is me.) To me to seems the repeating pattern is based on 19, and not 18. There are 2 stitches that get 5dcs, then the next stitch get 1 dc, followed by (skip 1 stitch & dc in the next one) 8 times. That would be 19 stitches. Can you please advise on this? Thank you. I love you work and your website.

      My second thought is maybe don’t have the 1 dc after the 2 5 dc stitches. This would bring thr reapeating pattern down to 18, but then it would have to change the instructions in the other rows.

        Thank you Miley. I love this project. I am making two in a smaller size for my cousin who is having twins. Almost done with the first one and it is beautiful. I am using an H hook and doing 9 sets.

    I feel so much better that I am not the only one having a hard time getting this pattern. lol It’s perfect for the Caron Cake I bought months ago! I was going to do another Ocean Wave afghan but I really like your pattern. I will wait for more instructions. Thanks

    I know you are busy with your move and a tutorial doesn’t happen overnight but even a chart would really help. Thanks for all that you do Mikey!

    Mikey, could you please have a tutorial? I am a visual learner and would greatly love to attempt the breaking waves afghan. It is a beautiful afghan!! I haven’t looked at the pattern yet but would learn better if a tutorial could be made. (even if it was just a swatch) Thanks

    I am an experienced crocheter and this pattern has me totally stumped. After 4 attempts, I am putting it aside until there is a chart and/or tutorial. Love the look, have the yarn, and will be waiting.

    I needed to have 220 starting chains in order for this pattern to work with 11 repeats. Took me three trys at my foundation row.

    Hi Mikey! Will there be a diagram for this pattern? My starting chain is correct, but I only have 10 clusters of 5dcs x 2. Am I missing something, also after the tenth cluster, I should only have 5 dcs, but I have 8. Please help!

    It is beautiful. Thank you for the directions. Can you add a chart too?

    Trying this pattern & it’s not making sense. Looking at the picture, it doesn’t appear that two rows (1 & 2) have the 5 dc in 2 sts. I keep looking at & enlarging the picture. Will there be a video tutorial?

        Sorry, but I don’t see any difference between what I downloaded yesterday & today’s pattern after you said correction made. What am I missing?

          Chain count is changed… The 5 dc in the 2 sts that you were mentioning are in the pattern where they should be.

            Thanks so much! BTW, I started with ch 162. Ended up with 8 waves & 9 extra chains. I’ll just let it go…

    I love the texture. Is the 198 starting chain count correct? Seems like it needs to be more to have the 11th wave cluster appear towards the end followed by the right number of dc and spaces. The first row is very similar to the seaside ripple first row that requires a starting chain of 210 to achieve 209 sts and 11 ripples.
