It fits a king size bed. I made it all in squares, then sewed them all together, and knitted the edging. Believe me, it is warm, I used 2 strands of DK throughout. It has survived 2 grandchildren, my daughter, & her Marine husband. It is beautiful, but, only adults can move it, lol.

I made the squares at work, approx 9" square. 3 different types of squares, then, I usually did one square a day, sometimes more on weekends, The sewing up took longer than anything, all those freaking ends... and remember I used 2 strands.. lol I was afraid it wouldn't be warm enough.

All together about 3 weeks start to finish. Believe me, I was tired of afghans for ahile.
