I am also working on an Ocean waves baby afghan for my sister-in-law. I am about 80% finished. I will do another wave and a border around. Here is how it looks so far.
If I make another one of these Afghans I will use a 5mm instead of a 5.5mm. But I think my next blanket in waves will be without the back loops only stitching. I am thinking I would like to do a ripple blanket. This one is really nice because it gives a 3D effect.
This is a free pattern from Red Heart. Just search their directory for Ocean Waves.
