This piece is one of the most gorgeous pieces I have made. It's 4 feet long and 3.5 feet wide. It's perfect for snuggling on the couch. Afghans are the warmest blankets around. They last forever. I have afghans my Grandmother made me that are over 20 years old. It did take me a long time to crochet every stitch and this yarn is super soft. This yarn is from Turkey and is 100% acrylic. This would also be a great gift, especially for those recovering from chemo. Machine wash, tumble dry. The true colors are in the darkest of the picture.
