Fantasy Blanket: Wave (V)

Part V
(Crochet * Stash-buster)

The fifth section of the Fantasy Blanket has a wave effect in the center, which is made by alternating double (Dc) and simple crochet (sc) stitches. 
La quinta sección de la Manta Fantasía tiene un efecto de onda u ola, que se logra al alternar puntos altos y bajos. 

Take note that this wave section is preceded and followed by a zigzag row, which serves as a frame. 
Noten que esta sección la antecede y la sigue una sección de zigzag, sirviendo como marco.

This is the graphic chart:
Este es el diagrama:

The Wave section is made with three colors:  Color A (for the background), Color B (for the wave in the center), Color C (for the sc rows that highlight the wave).

1. (Color A) All Dc
2. (Color A) Chain 3 (counts as first Dc), then make 3 more Dcs.  *4sc + 4Dc*, repeat until the end.

Note: This is the only section that does not follow the multiple of 3 +2, because the waves are made in a rhythm of 4 stitches (4 Dc + 4 sc). If the number of stitches you are working with is not a multiple of 4, divide the “floating stitches” in 2 and add them at the beginning and end. 
Example of calculations:
104 st./4=26 waves
110 st./4=27 waves + 2st [with the floating 2sts, you need to make the first and last waves with 5 sts]
122 st./4=30 waves +2st
152 st./4=38 waves
If you don´t like math…Send me your number of stitches, and I will gladly make the calculations for you.

3. (Color C) All sc.
4. (Color B) You need to work this row exactly the opposite of row 2. Make a sc instead of a Dc, and make a Dc instead of an sc.
5. (Color B) Make each stitch exactly as you see it below in row 4. Dc over a Dc, and sc over a sc.
6. (Color C) All sc.
7. (Color A) Repeat row 2, exactly the same.
8. (Color A) All Dc.

[Note: Now remember to repeat the mini-zigzag after finishing the wave pattern] 

This is how the blanket is progressing... and also a sneak peek of the next row…

Instrucciones (en español)
La sección de Ondas se hace con tres colores: Color A (para el fondo), Color B (para la onda central), Color C (para las hileras de medio punto que resaltan las ondas).

1.  (Color A) Todos puntos altos
2.  (Color A) 3 cadenas (cuenta como el primer Pa), luego hacer 3 Pa.  *4 pb + 4Pa* repetir hasta el final.

[Nota: Esta sección es la única que no sigue la regla del múltiplo de 3.  Las ondas se hacen en ritmo de 4 puntos (4 altos + 4 bajos).  Si el número de puntadas con las que están trabajando no son múltiplos de 4, asegúrense de repartir los puntos sobrantes y añadirlos al principio y al final. 

3.  (Color C) Todos pb.
4. (Color B) Esta pasada se hace en forma opuesta que el # 2. Se hsce un pb donde había un Pa, y se hace un Pa donde había un pb.
5. (Color B) Repetir la hilera 4, tal como se ve (Pa donde hay Pa, y pb donde hay pb).
6. (color C) Todos pb.
7. (Color A) Repetir la hilera 2. 
8. (Color A) Todos Pa.
