Berry Ice Cream Afghan Pattern

I was working on a different project, watching Chopped, when inspiration struck out of nowhere. Like, literally, my brain said, “Hey, I have an idea, write this down before you forget.” So I did!
It’s never written in any specific form and it’s always a mess, but inspiration just struck and I had to get it out before I forgot…because, let’s be honest, my memory is the worst! Anyway, I won’t bored you with anymore jabber when your probably just looking for the pattern.

  1. hello, i had a quick question: on the beginning of row 4, it begins with a ch1 and sc in the first stitch. Was this meant to be a ch2 and dc in first stitch instead? Thank you 🙂
