If you are new to round ripple afghans this is a link for tips before you start.
Following direction for the Basic Round Ripple Afghan
This pattern is worked mainly with Double Crochet stitches and single random Popcorn stitches as desired for effect.
On Round 5 I inserted the first of the random popcorn stitches in the points of the round as follows working basic pattern (* double crochet to point, work Popcorn, ch 2, Popcorn, double crochet to bottom, continue around,) join.
Starting on row 13 I worked the random popcorn stitches in every third round and I did balance the popcorn stitches so each point would look the same. If you double click the photo on the blog it will enlarge on a new tab so you can examine it closely

When your afghan is as large as you want a simple “V” stitch border can be worked
This afghan has 4 rounds of “V” stitches with the last round topped with a picot stitch
Border Pattern Stitch double crochet, chain 1, dc in same space. “V” stitch made
Final Round Picot stitch: Double crochet, chain 3, slip st in first chain, dc in same stitch = "V" st with picot.You will be working (“V” stitch, ch 3, “V” stitch) in the points so you should count backward from the point to the bottom to determine your starting stitch. You will be skipping at least 2 stitches as the bottom as the basic pattern requires.
Round 1 Sl st into designated stitch, ch 4, dc in same space, first “V” st, (*sk 1 stitch, “V” st in next st to point* ) Work “V” st, chain 3 “V” st in point, work pattern stitch to bottom of point and skip number of stitches needed to keep sides even. Work around, join to third chain of beginning chain 4. (You will need the extra stitches in the points to keep the pattern flat)
Round 2: Sl st into center of the “V” stitch, ch 4, dc in same space, “V” st in the center of each “V” st to the point, For the point work “V” st, in the existing “V” ; “V” st chain 3, “V” st in the 3 chain space, “V” st in the 2nd existing “V” st all in the same point, work around, join
Repeat Round 2 till you have the width you want up to the last round .
Final round Work "V" st with picot st, in the center of each “V” st of the previous row, working (dc, picot, dc, picot, dc, picot, dc) in the center 3 chain space of each point.
