I had made two afghans for our nephews wedding gifts and my husband asked me when I would make one for him. He said it had to be bigger and wider so that is what I did. Let me tell you it weighs a ton but oh how it keeps him warm!
This would be an awesome quilt! Mandala crochet blanket, text of pattern at link. Like this square design and colors. Would like to use them for round afghan as well. NOTE: look up conversion for pattern to USA it's written in UK gauge.
