My dad is going through a tough time and and i want to knit him an afgan to be able to hug him when i'm not there.  Anyway, i know i can find a ton of patterns on my own, but I was wondering what your favorite patterns were.  The ones that were really interesting, or particularly beautiful or just gave you a good feeling.
I really appreciate the suggestions!

That's really sweet of you to make your dad something he'll love!
I really like this pattern:

They're all essentially the same thing, just different ways of doing it. 
I like the idea that you can use scrap yarn and it looks like it could go pretty quick (I haven't started it, I just have grand plans!).

Good luck on your search for the perfect afgan.  Let us know what you choose!

I loved this pattern: http://www.wiseneedle.com/patternpage.asp?pattern=knitpatlaurel.  It always seemed a bit too much for me, though.  Plus, I really hate DPNs. 

You can't really see the pattern too clearly in the picture, but someone made it here: http://ca.geocities.com/kmsperling@rogers.com/knitting/gelman2.html (scroll down to the June 27th picture, which seems to give the best idea).
