I LOVE THIS PATTERN!!! I have made it more times than I can count. If I follow the instructions it takes me about 5 1/2 hours. I've modified it for as small as a baby crib size and as large as a king size bed. I have also used this pattern with many different yarns and hook sizes. It always turns out great and everyone is thrilled when they get one. Eventually I'll have to make one for myself.

I tackled this one as my first afghan ever. Having just started crocheting only 6 months ago, I found the pattern to be very easy to understand, and to follow. I love this afghan. It's softer than the storebought one I used to use before making this. However, as an actual beginner, I did not finish this in 4 1/2 hours. I can understand if you are more experienced, it should be pretty easy to do. Even though I couldn't do it in the time suggested, it did work up nice and quick. I finished it in probably 9 hours, or a whole week of crocheting after work before bed. I chose a different color as well. I did the deco (a soft off-white color) as suggested, but did olive instead of the other color. This made it have a more "Springy" look to it.

Overall, the afghan is lightweight, but still snuggly; flowy, but not girly. If you haven't already attempted this pattern, do it! You won't regret it :)

I can't say enough about this pattern: for ease, speed, beauty, and warmth, it can't be beat! And you can use any two colors you like (I used Rococo and Quartz instead of the given colors, to match my 90-year-old mother's decor. The texture and yummy yarn make this pattern versatile enough to suit a wide range of people. In fact, when my college-age nephew watched me finishing up his grandmother's afghan on Christmas Eve,he said he wouldn't mind having one for his dorm!

Quick and easy. I taught my sisters how to crochet with this simple pattern. Great beginner project.

Excellant pattern, quick, easy,and its beautiful once completed. Would recommend this pattern for perhaps someone who is just starting to crochet.

I am very happy with how this turned out but had been really confused by the "skip last sc" at the end of the row. When I did this, or whatever I thought I was doing, it started looking strange. After undoing a few rows (3 times in a row!) I gave up trying to understand that part of the pattern. Since I was coming out evenly at the end of the row, I decided to do a sc/dc like the rest of the row. Its only my second blanket but thought in the end it turned out just fine :)

I LOVE this pattern - I have made it again and again with this yarn and also with super saver - two skeins of colored and two plain, the extra plain makes a wonderful border.

I enlarged it for my nephew - just finished a baby blanket with pounds of love - one pound lavender and the other white - it was lovely.
