This is being made with Lion Brand - Pound of Love and it is on a size 17 circular needle while knitting two yarns at the same time. Very thick, knits very fast and I made a pink one awhile back and it's soooo cozy. ;)

OMGoodnes!!! This is JUST the kind of thing I'm looking for as a gift to make for my best friend's wedding.

Aww, thanks for the nice comments. ;) Here is the book where I got the pattern: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1574866435/sr=1-6/qid=1152925440/ref=sr_1_6/002-8747958-2672807?redirect=true&ie=UTF8&s=books

I've now made the pattern from the front cover twice. It has 24 afghan patterns and let me tell you, it's my favorite pattern book IMO. Well worth the $9. if you are looking for a great afghan pattern book. All of them are made while knitting two yarns at the same time so they've got some nice bulk to them.

Both have been made with Lion Brand yarn called, "Pound of Love." I've attached the other picture of the pink one I made for my Grandmother. It looks like it's smaller but it isn't. It's folded over on the left.

That looks so beautiful! Thanks for the pattern, too! I may just try the pattern for the next blanket I'm knitting. The pink one is too cute!

OMG - I have that book!!!! :shock: :oops: I can't believe I didn't recognize the pattern!!! I guess color really makes a world of difference? :thinking: Thus far, I've actually one afghan from that book: I made the Sunny *something* one; it's the yellow one that has a tray sitting on it. I think I posted a pic in my blog :?? I made it for my mother :D And get this .... I used Pound of Love too!!!!! :mrgreen:
