My kids always fall asleep on the long drive back home after Friday dinners at her place. So when it got winter they would start to complain about the car being chilly when they got in, so I decided to make an afghan to leave in the car and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

I used three 300 grams which is 3 skeins.

DC dec = DC decrease
sk sts = skip stitches
V stitch = dc, ch 1, dc all worked in the same stitch

Feel free to use this chart if you prefer.
This stitch is done in multiples of 14 + 6
Chain 244 or if you want it bigger you can addin sets of 14 until you reach desired width then ch 6 and you’re ready to start. Each set of 14 chains makes one hump.
dc in 6th ch from the hook, * sk 2 sts, V stitch in next ch, sk 2 sts, working in the same stitch, dc and ch 1 three times, then dc 1 more time. This is your upper peak. Sk 2 sts, V st in next st, sk 2 sts, begin your dc dec using the next ch, sk a ch then finish your dc dec in next ch. Pull through 3 loops. That completes your lower peak *
Repeat for row.
To end row: You will be ending on a lower peak, using the last 3 chs of the row.
Row 2 – This is the repeat
Change colors here if desired
Ch 3 and DC in the first V stitch, into the SPACE and NOT the ch/st. Now find your upper peak and the 3 spaces there.
1st space work a V stitch. In the next space you will create your new peak so in this space work, dc and ch 1 three times, then dc 1 more time to complete your peak. Work another V stitch in next space.
Now using the v stitches from last row, (the ones that are on either side of your lower peak \ dc dec)
You will work a dc dec using those 2 V stitches.
Now you’ve reached your next upper peach area again. You’ll be using the same 3 spaces of the upper peak. * Repeat for row.
To end row you will do a DC dec using the last V stitch and the top of the ch 3. Cut yarn leaving a bit of a tail for fringe.
Repeat row 2 until you reach desired size.
Feel free to thicken up your fringe on the sides after your project is done.
