I started this in September, and I finally got around to finishing it up today. It's all yarn from my stash, single crochet with an N hook. I just grabbed whatever color I thought would look good next and made the stripes pretty random. It's roughly twin-bed sized, I'm not sure what the exact measurements are though.

On the bed (it looks too short, but it's an extra long twin bed, so it really is long enough to cover me)


Another angle on the bed:


On the (slightly messy) floor:


And an in-progress pic just for fun from september when I started!

It looks great!  I started one very similar to yours on Christmas day and just finished it yesterday.  Smiley  Yours looks awesome though, very neat and straight (unlike mine).

Id have given up mid october! It looks soooooo snuggly warm and soft. Youve inspired me to start something similar to bust my stash!

Amazing work, your rows are very precise. I recently started a similar endeavor, but it is ripple stitch. And I'm changing colors every row. I hope mine is as neat as yours when it is finished.

  Ha!  I thought the very same thing.  (I love those ladders in libraries)

I really like it.  As everyone else has said, your rows are so neat!  ANd I like how you laid out the colors.
