I really love this project. It's my first time doing tapestry crochet, so I read through the reviews and also watched some videos showing how to hide the color I'm not working with. Very easy and nice result. I bought a Yarn Tote Organizer (on sale $14.99 at craft/yarn store (name starts with Herr)) and that really helps keep it all organized. Lots of fun and very happy.

I finished this blanket last night so here's my thought about making it.
It's beautiful, even more beautiful than the pattern's picture. Everyone who has seen it is overawed by the vibrant colors and patterns. I used the yarn recommended by Annie's Attic and I'm so glad I did. It feels like silk and doesn't tangle which is important when you get to the rows using 4 strands of yarn.
The first half was fun to make because the colors and patterns were changing often enough to keep my interest. The second half was more challenging. The afghan has 61,466 single crocheted stitches in it so unless you're a person who can hang in there for the long haul I wouldn't even start it. It took me four months, crocheting one or two hours a day.
The pattern was easy to follow and after a while you get into the rhythm of the color changes.
The only hard part for beginning crocheters might be the rows with multiple color changes. But once you learn how to carry and change the strands of yarn, you'll find it easy.
Was it worth the work? Definitely, it's heirloom quality! In fact, I'm going to make a smaller, afghan size for my mother.

Love this blanket. I made it for myself but as I finished it my husband claimed it. Easy to make.

Beautiful blanket. I made this blanket for my husband who is Native American. His tribal colors are red and blue so I changed the black to navy blue and used more red also. Great project!

This is an absolutely stunning blanket! I have all the yarn and am just starting. I read all the reviews and am wondering, how does the back of this look? I gather it's not a reversible blanket?
Annie's Customer Service

Judy - This blanket uses tapestry crochet. Therefore, the back will look very similar to the front. You can watch a quick tutorial by going to our stitch guide.
