Quick, simple and SUPER THICK! Reviewed by Julie Zimmerman on 2010-11-13 *****
I love how it turned out and it was pretty quick, not quite 5.5 hours but less than 10.

I ended up making a decent size throw using 4 balls of solid color and 5 of a print (if you use Vanna's Choice the prints are 35 yards less per skein so 4 skeins of solids equals 5 skeins prints). The pattern says 39 rows but I made 50 with no edging.

Since I had 1 skein left of each solid I purchased a 6th skein of the print and am going to make the throw a few rows longer and then do a couple rounds of edging.

I highly recommend this if you don't have the patience for a smaller hook afghan - I know I don't and I like the immediate results of this. Plan on making it next with 2 strands of HomeSpun!

MY COLORS:
Mountain Print, Taupe and Chocolate
