So, I want to make ma' boo a cozy afghan for his birthday (which is February 4th). It needs to be pretty quick because his birthday is coming up really fast, and not made out of any really expensive yarn because I'm broke. I'm thinking one of those really airy afghans with loose stitches would be really great for this, but I can't seem to find a patten like that. Actually, suggestions for a really airy stitch itself would be great too, because I could just repeat that until I got something the size and shape of a blankie. Thanks!

My personal favorite airy stitch is the v-stitch.

I would use a chunky yarn like Wool Ease-quick and easy and a size 'N' hook for a quick but cozy afghan.

I did try that first, but I found that most patterns vary in color combinations but there isn't much variety when it comes to the actual stitches. I wanted some advice from someone who actually used the pattern or stitch, too.

Couldn't tell if you mean knit or crochet but here's some good patterns for either
