this was my practice one, so it's only about the size of a plate.

once you get in to it, it's far easier, it's just getting it up to 10 or so rows is the hardest.

  I get confused after a few rounds Huh, where you finish one round and begin t'next.  

I sl-st'd to the next ch-space before beginning the next round.  That way, you avoid the sloppy-looking holes where one round ends and the next one begins. 

Berol, I finished mine off by doing one round of plain dc (with 8 dc in each ch-sp), and one round of plain sc (sc in every st).  Can't wait to see how you finish yours, and how big it is!

Good idea! Use thick yarn and a big hook. Cheesy

after what feels like endless hours using 4-ply and a G hook, I wish I'd done that!!!

I just finished mine tonight. It took basically forever since I was using an F hook. But it's done and looks adorable so in the end the hours of work were worth it. It's about 46 inches from one point to a point on the opposite side.

And here is the stripe pattern. It's yellow and blue stripes with thin white stripes inbetween.

I love the blue and white it looks really cuddly and soft.  What yarn did you use?

Not that I need another crochet project on the go at the moment.....
