The photo above is of the second Spiderman Round Ripple afghan, and is the one the following pattern is based on. It is approximately 53 inches across. The photo below the pattern is of the first 'ghan. The only difference is the distribution of color, but you can see what a difference it makes.
The base pattern for this afghan is found at http://www.angelcrafts.net/ Please take a look at Lyn's original Round Ripple Baby Afghan, it's lovely and is a lovely gift for a baby.

Wrap and gift to a Spiderman fan and watch their eyes light up~
NOTE: The round count for the colors used were only the number of rounds that were in each color of the afghan pictured above. Each one I make has a different number of rounds in red and blue, only the black round is one round each time because it represents the web itself.
I have been contacted several times about the instruction;
"Continue working in rounds in colors and pattern established, always working 1 round with small shell, and 2 rounds with large shell. Continue repeating rounds 7-8-9"
This means that you should work those three rounds over and over, regardless of the color used for the rounds. That is what keeps the afghan flat as it increases in size. Also, make the afghan as large as you want. For a very small Spidey fan you might want a smaller afghan, while for an older fan you might want to keep going for more rounds so it's larger. The size is not 'set in stone'.
If you have any questions about the pattern, don't hesitate to send a message to my yahoo account, firstname.lastname@example.org, or to my other account if you have it. The pattern is on the blog so that it can be made for Spiderman fans, and I am always happy to give any assistance that I can.
