Today I was at JoAnn Fabrics. buying yarn for afghan and on a end cap was a book "ripple afghans" and that afghan is on the cover. Of course not the same pretty colors. I believe the no. on the back was either 5950 or 5650 by leisure arts.
I didn't look at the price sine I already have it, it looks the same as the one I made from my crochet fantasy I think it was.

Looks like "Lacy chevron" and "Planned" is the same, just different colors, right?

Almost, just a slight variance to the pattern rows that I can tell.
I have the book LA 335, and that is what I can see by scanning the info.
I have not studied it word for word.

Here is the one poster is referring to...LA 5950
http://www.leisurearts.com/products/ripple-afghans-ebook.html
When you enlarge the picture, it doesn't look like the same tight pattern.
This one looks more loose and open.

You mean between the 2 different LA books?
One is a chevron, the other is named a ripple.

The one I have is chevron too. I even tried to pause the show when they showed her working on the afghan but hard to tell if she used 3 shades of rose or two. I also think hers is rippled.
