Love this blanket, can you clarify the weight of you Fat and Happy yarn? Is it indeed a 6 weight or is it chunkier?

What is the easiest blanket made?


Nov 30, 2013

This pattern was so fast and easy. It is one of those projects that looks like it took A LOT of time and effort, which is not the case at all. I crocheted a contrasting color border around the finished product just to "frame" it. I used a Lion Brand chunky yarn which was on sale at Michaels. The whole thing cost less than $30.00.

I love the looks of this afghan; but for some reason the 1st 3 rows come out fine, then after the 4th row it gets all goofed up and starts to look like knit. I'm following the directions so could there be a step missing in the directions?? I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I think I'm getting frustrated from clicking on a link that doesn't take me to the proper page. The email contained a link to "Funnel Cake Afghan", and instead I get taken to "Easy Blanket". Thanks, but I can do "easy" on my own...I'm looking for challenges.
