After 3 years (on and off of course), 152 rows and over 45,100 stitches; my husband's blanket is finally done!  Cheesy

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'.

Great color choices, and your stitching is just beautiful. Major kudos for keeping at it for so long; I'm so terrible with keeping myself on task for blankets, so I love seeing other people make beautiful ones like this.
