This throw is probably the easiest one I have ever seen! I love the color, too. Working with bulky yarn always makes big projects like this go much faster, which is always nice. If you do not enjoy the teal color, there are tons of other colors to choose from, which is also great!

This is a lovely color throw. However, the jumbo yarn used to make it is outside my budget. For other projects I've used three or four strands of yarn together, depending on the weights of the yarns, so I might do that with this pattern. It would be fun to do it in stripes or ombre colors.

I'm obsessed with how chunky this afghan is!

I am always cold even in the summer! I like this pattern because it just makes me feel warm by looking at it. I have throws in just about every room in the house except for two rooms. Now I have a pattern for one room or maybe just different colors for both rooms.
