It means you chain 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24 (etc.) and add 9 more chains to make 13, 17, 21, 25, or 33.

I have a ripple afghan (to fit a queen-sized bed) I've been working on for about six years.  I am supremely sick of the sight of the thing, but I will finish it someday.

Yep, I made my first granny square when I was 6 years old.  I had a broken leg and needed something to keep me busy.  For several years I had the best blanketed dolls in the county.

It's a granny square blanket, multi-colored squares with black borders.
The granny square is the first thing lots of crocheters learn.  Google granny square pattern and you'll find lots of them.  The hardest things about granny squares is joining all the bloody things when you're done.  It has a chain, double crochet (or treble if you're in the UK) and slip stitches.

When I was six years old, I broke my leg.  My Granny taught me to make granny squares.  I had the best blanketed dolls in town and then she moved me on to other motif patterns. (Since six year olds like instant gratification and want finished things pretty quick.)  By the time I was eight I had a finished thread crochet tablecloth for my Mother.  When was ten, she taught me how to crochet rag rugs.

Glad I could help.  I remembered the name because its on my (abusrdly long) list of patterns to make 'one of these days'.  That list i'll get started on if I ever get finished with my Christmas gift list (also absurdly long).

Congrats on the impending little one.

Gentle hugs,

CJ

Is this anything like what you're looking for?

I thought it might be this one, but the color scheme doesn't fit.

Studies show that what babies can see best and respond to best are bold primary colors and high-contrast geometric patterns.  Your blanket is on the cutting edge in infant development.

I tend to use an H a lot for some reason.

But the only one that I have a real sentimental attachment for is the cherrywood one that my father-in-law carved for me when I was still a newlywed.  I don't even know for sure what size it it, but it will always have a place of honor in my work basket.
