I am working on the 12 pointed ripple afghan, but somehow I accidently ended up with 9 points, so I know that's the reason it's turning bowl shaped. I really didint want to redo it, so is there a way to fix it so the rest is flat? Increase more?

Hmmz. I would say start by putting more stitches at the point. Like if it says 2 dc, chain 3, 2 dc in the same chain 3 space, i would do 3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc. But honestly, I would start over.

I agree. Even if you do start correcting now, if you don't frog it and start again, you'll end up with a weird lumpy middle of the afghan and it won't lay flat. How far into it are you?

I'm so sorry that happened... and I do feel your pain.
You must turn in to a frog and rippit rippit rippit.
I know it's painful but we have all been there and it bites.  You will be much happier in the end.

If you don't it will be mishapen in the center and every time you see it you will wish you had just ripped it out  Cry  Then you'll toss it in the corner and let the dog or cat sleep on it and even then you won't be happy so you'll chuck it out and if you have the same luck as I do, you will see it draped around a homeless person's shoulders which will make you happy but every time you see that person huddled outside under the bridge or in front of the library you will be reminded of that blanket and wished that you had taken the time to restart it....

Okay. seriously, that never happened to me but I had to throw it out there  Grin
