I call it Disco Throw because the picture in the original mag looks like the floor from Saturday Night Fever.

I finished the 169 squares back in Dec/Jan when I had two weeks off of work. At that point, I was so burnt out on crochet, I couldn't bear the thought of putting them together. Once I finally sat down to do it several weeks later, I couldn't really understand the instructions.

Finally, middle of last week I MADE myself do it. The assembly instructions worked just fine, I have no idea why I had so much trouble before.

This is probably my last crochet project EVER, but I am absolutely in love with the FO. The picture really doesn't do justice to the colors :(

I used mostly Caron Simply Soft though a few colors are Red Heart Soft.
