Another one to knit is all in garter stitch, knit on the bias. CO 4 sts, knit 2 rows then each row after you k2, YO (yarn over), k the rest of the stitches. Do this until it's as wide as you want (yes you need a circular needle to hold all the sts), then you would k2, YO, k2tog knit the rest of the sts until you get to 4 sts, then knit a row and bind off. You can knit with larger size needles to make it go faster too.

Ya, thanks for the website but I have already looked there. I am not that good with patterns, so I felt I would be better off actually asking someone.

Try this pattern. It's pretty much what I was talking about.

Oh ya, I looked at that throw pattern, but I never really got what they mean by cast on 84 so I didn't try it. Do you think there is any way I can do that on two straight needles?

You could do it in sections. 3 sections of 30 stitches each and then crochet the pieces together.

Yes but, I figured that the induvidual sections would curl, like ^^^ (obviously not so pointed but you get the idea)

You could make 2 panels about 24" wide. They won't curl after they're seamed together. For the sides, you can knit in a border for the two that will be the edges, or do the border after you're done.

You could knit panels and sew them together in the end.This is pretty much the only way you can knit an afghan without using circular needles. My sister just finished what she call her scarf afghan. She knit 5 "scarves" and seamed them together. She got the idea from this pattern.
You could use what ever stitch you are comfortable with.
