After 3 years (on and off of course), 152 rows and over 45,100 stitches; my husband's blanket is finally done!
I used the "Trophy Afghan" pattern from Vintage Crochet for Your Home
and Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Aran, Bay Print and Frosty Green. For size I doubled the width and for the length I followed the pattern through once and then added the following after the last rows to increase the length:
4 rows B, 8 rows C, 10 rows B, 8 rows C, 4 rows B, 8 rows A.
The blanket measures approximately 7'x8'.
