This looks like a quick, easy pattern. And it is so beautiful! I would enjoy sitting under a throw like this in the winter, especially! It gets pretty cold where I live, so this would be wonderful to have. Does anyone know the conversions if you were to use worsted weight yarn instead? I have tons of different colors of yarn hanging around my house, and this would be the perfect project to use them on!

This does look like a fast throw to knit. Using two strands of bulky or chunky yarn together and the super big needles it ought to work up very quickly. I'm tempted to use this as a stash buster blanket for whatever odds and ends are hiding in my stash.

should mention that I am presently knitting this throw, but without the fringe as I want it to be a blanket for my newest dog when it is finished I shall use it as a shawl, stole, lap throw, even as a pillow for a night or two, handling it constantly - then I shall send it to his breeder so he can adjust to my scent and the scents of my home before he and it fly here. Of course the fact that I have handled it during the knitting will help too - and he will have an attractive knit blanket for shows and home... looking at another for him too - a way to combine my interests so far no problem with the tension

are you casting on too knightly? or knitting with too tight a tension? they say that everyone has a different tension - some knitting looser than others - this may have an effect here ..

Knightly- did you mean tightly? I don't think that is the issue. if you read the pattern and realize that the instructions say to cast on with 5 strands of bulky yarn, you can understand that this is far too tight for the needles that are recommended. Bulky yarn is 12 ply, 5 strands makes the yarn 60 ply and that is a higher ply than the rope we use to tie our boat off with at the dock.

I would like to know whether anyone else has made the Fast Finish Throw. The large needle required seems incorrect. The stitches are tight on the needle and do not look good. Also the item does not look as if will appear like the finished product.

I've made 2 of these and the yarn is too tight so I went to 1 strand of each yarn and knit about 10 extra rows and it worked out well. hoep this helps, happy knitting.
