Hearts + Waves Afghan, now thats just awesome-beautiful! Ravelry: sheraynes - not that I think Ill ever be able to make something this cool, but maybe I could make a potholder in that pattern:) - DIY Project Idea
Bulky Crochet blanket - thinking this will be a nice winter time project. Per another pinner's comments: Rows of half-double crochet done in the back loops only, using bulky (weight class or super-bulky (weight class yarn with a P or even Q size hook.
5 hour throw - I made this as a wedding gift, but liked it so much I ended up keeping it for myself. Love it, so easy to make and still warm and comfy.~~~from prior pinner. I would have made myself one later and given this as a gift unless it was crappy!
this would be easy to do without a pattern, make first row as long as needed then decrease every other row until you get it as short as you'd like for the arm length and the wrap around the back, then just repeat for desired length. Easy to CROCHET, too!
