This past Christmas I decided to crochet an afghan for my mom. I used the fattest crochet hook I could find and Lion Brand Homespun Thick & Quick yarn in Relish. I simply made row after row of double crochets and a border of single crochets. I used five skeins of yarn for the body of the afghan, and then about a half skein for the border. It took me about three days to complete, and probably closer to a total of 14 hours or so.
