5 1/2 Hour Throw Reviewed by Anna fankhauser on 2015-05-25 *****
I love this pattern and have made in the meanwhile more then 20 blankets for family and friends. It is a great stitch which works well with any of the lions yarns or other brands. Thanks for a fun and quick project!

Very easy pattern,however I am going on my 2nd day. I'm using 7oz yarn. My friend just bought her 1st house:)

I have made this pattern twice and loved it! The pattern crochets quickly. If you struggle keeping three yarns going, put them all in a bag beside you -- they pull much easier that way and get less tangled!

I made one of these in all-white for a baby shower. Very soft and pretty and pattern extremely user-friendly. I chose not to add the fringe, trimmed instead with white organza ribbon threaded through the loops at either end.

I made a few of these throws! First two for a gift, but as my children liked them so much, I also made one for them...
It is such an easy pattern to make. I made them a bit larger, so it took me more time, but it sure is a quick crochet project!
I live in the Netherlands and did use simple acryl, three skeins at once, needle nine.
Probably I will make more of these! I also used this pattern to make a shawl and a cowl.

5 1/2 Hour Throw Reviewed by Heidi Aho on 2012-12-22 ****
I'm an advanced beginner crocheter - pattern was easy to follow and while it did work up quickly, it took closer to 10-12 hours (including fringe). I used a Q hook (the biggest one I have) and my throw was much smaller than the pattern. I do tend to crochet on the tighter side and I don't typically check my gauge before jumping in so the sizing could be my error.

I would use this pattern again but would add stitches to my foundation chain as well as additional rows to achieve the size stated in the pattern.

I used Vanna's Choice in dusty blue, silver heather (didn't realize their less yardage in this color's skeins) and Vanna's Glamour in diamond. Looks really great and I hope my giftee enjoys it!

I made this throw to give to my mother for mother's day. I am a beginner to crochet but this was an easy pattern to follow. I used Vanna's choice yarn in Scarlet, Mustard, and Rust. Even though this throw has large holes it is very warm. I am making another one for my mother-in-law. I am using Vanna's choice yarn in Dusty Blue and Kelly Green. The third color is soft fern in Loops & Threads impeccable worsted weight yarn.

I absolutely love this pattern! I think it took me longer than 5.5 hours but don't mind. I turned out beautiful! Don't let the holes mislead you, it is so warm and cozy!

this took a little longer time to create, but turned out just lovely for my soon to come grandson. Left off the fringe for a baby.

I have made two of the these and they are perfect for gift giving. I made on with all multi colors and one in red and black, they are both stunning. I will make more of these for sure!
