  1. Is there a sc in between the sc,dc in same stitch?? At the end of the line you are going directly on top of the last sc,dc from last line, is that correct?

  2. Nice I made one for myself to work out the kinks/make sure I knew what I was doing. My daughter liked it so much, I made her one for part of her wedding gift.

  3. Nice afghan. Easy pattern. However,VERY expensive if you use the HOMESPUN yarn.

    I make projects for the homeless and this one will be a great one to make. Thanks so much for the pattern

  5. This pattern is great. Used it to get rid of scrap wool this winter.
    Whatever I had left I mixed with a solid beige n it looks amazing n was asked by a few friends if they could have it. Thanks for sharing :)

  6. Just tried this and it is great! I like that it is so soft and HUGE!
    I get the satisfaction of seeing real progress every time I pick it up.
    I worked on it for about an hour every night and it took me about a
    week. I only used to skeins and it was still quite large. I am a sit
    in front of the TV to crochet kind of person and this was perfect for that
    purpose. Love it! Will do them for Christmas this year!

  7. i didn’t like this pattern sorry. =-(

  8. This is a very good pattern. A beautiful product using basic simple stitches. I modified it by using a P hook and a 76 count beginning chain, so it took me longer than the 4.5 hours. I am teaching my coworkers to crochet. I will use this pattern as our first project.

  9. I made this for my grandson and I used two skiens of baby yarn which made it a little thicker/heavier and still quite soft. Love the pattern and have shared it with others as on of my favorites.

  10. I love to crochet but can never find the time. I saw this and picked a day that I a wasn’t doing anything and worked on this for about 4 1/2 hours. Now it’s done and I love it!!!! thnx!!

  11. Great pattern and the large hook works up fast.

  13. Great looking afghan. With time being short, this is just what I needed to find. Thanks so much!

  14. hmmm, this looks like something good to try….i’ll print it out and try it, i don’t like spending a lot of time on crochet projects but i LOVE making afghans, they are always so warm and cozy in the winter, maybe i’ll try it

  15. I have made this and I love the pattern!
