Need an afghan and quick? Check out the Marvelous Mile a Minute Afghan Pattern! It'll take you next to no time to crochet and will look fabulous when you're finished. It's an easy crochet blanket pattern when you're in a time crunch.
pattern for this can be found at Haken en Meer (just translate it from the Dutch). It’s basically AWESOME. Looks like a granny stitch but with a small stitch in between. Loving it so much that it’s going on my to-do-sooner-rather-than-later list.
