This is one of my favorite patterns because it is so easy to follow for a beginning knitter like myself and makes quite a lovely afghan. I have made several for family and friends. I even made one as a special Christmas gift for my husband who loves it and uses it all the time.

Just finished this afghan as a wedding gift. Wonderful pattern, easy to follow, and the thick n' quick yarn is indeed, thick and quick. I did modified the pattern to make it larger so the happy couple could cuddle up together to chill off cold winter nights. I added 36 stitches to cast on (total of 136 sts.) which gives an extra 2 sets of l8 stitch blocks. And I added an extra 48 rows. Measures a little over 5'x 5'. I used 9 skeins (l0 to be on the safe side) and followed the pattern otherwise. Love this pattern and will be making it again and again and one for myself!!! Thanks Lion Brand.

I made this in roving yarn on size 19 needles - very fashionable and quick. Of course it took a ton a yarn but the results were worth it - for my daughter's wedding.

One thing I did was to knit and purl the knit row so that the afghan was reversible.

This pattern was fun and easy. It looks just like the picture! I will be making more of then for sure.

This is a beautiful blanket,and easy to make. I made this as a gift for my son and his fiancee. I used the the Hometown USA yarn in Houston Cream, and I added on an additional 48 rows to make it longer. I love this blanket and am thinking about making one for myself, as it is so soft and cuddly.

Love this pattern! Knits up really quickly. I made slight change so afghan was reversible. I ran out of yarn at the very end and did last 6 rows of basketweave in another color. It was stunning and the first thing everyone admired. I wish I could send a picture but finished it barely in time for Christmas.

I increased the size of this afghan to 172 stitches and made it in two colors, claret and blossom. It turned out beautifully.

Love this pattern. It's easy to do and comes together really quickly! I used Hometown USA Little Rock Granite for mine and added an extra two rows to get some additional length (I made this for my step-dad, who is about 6 ft). Because the skeins are smaller, it took 14 to finish, but the whole thing still came together in less than a week! Perfect gift to go under the Christmas tree :) I may make one for myself using slightly smaller needles for a tighter knit.

I have knitted this twice now. Very easy knit. It helps if you put place markers at each pattern change. It used almost all of the 8 skeins of yarns. I used mesquite for the second one.
