This throw works up quickly. I managed to finish my first one in just a week. Also, it's idea for making a great bed scarf. You can even double the yarn for thicker and heavier results. The one I've completed and the other that I'm currently working on are slated for Christmas gifts. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY chain, single crochet, double crochet, read a basic pattern GAUGE 5 V - stitch repeats and 8 rows = 4" in Body of Throw pattern. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 65" x 44"
