the afghan patter is super easy..worked with 2 strands so thick yarn and big needles.. it works up rapidly, only 4 panels. Next time I will add rows and maybe make an extra panel to increase the size. I like a big bulky afghan to wrap up in. This one is actually light I was surprised and pleased at how it came out. Do not hesitate to try a pattern like this it was not as difficult as I had feared. If you like I can send it to you either your e-mail or here on Spark Mail. Let me know!
