"Learn to make an EASY and QUICK crochet blanket. I was totally surprised at how fast this afghan worked up! This fast and easy crochet blanket is one that every beginner MUST try! This tutorial uses just two stitches, the foundation chain stitch and the half double crochet stitch, making it a great blanket for beginners. Using a thick yarn, like Bernat blanket yarn, speeds up the process. The thicker the yarn, the faster the blanket will be finished."
