5 1/2 Hour Afghan Throw

Looking for a quick gift idea?  I made this throw sized afghan for Ally in just about 7 hours of actual crochet time.

It is an easy and quick pattern using a large “P” crochet hook and working with 3 strands of worsted weight yarn.  The entire afghan is made with the V-stitch which is just double crochets and chains.

By using Caron One Pound I was able to crochet the entire thing and still have some leftover yarn.

Since receiving this blanket Allysa has used the stitch pattern to make some baby blankets.

The pattern is free from Lion Brand at:  http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80112AD.html
