Adapted from THIS pattern.
Afghan is worked with a P-hook, THREE strands held together, and absolute crap load of worsted weight acrylic.
Ch 84. (Or however wide you like your blankies. I’m 5’10” and like to be swallowed in afghan-osity. You can do 54, 64, 74, 84, 1204…)
Row 1 Sc and dc in 2nd ch from hook, *skip 1 ch, sc and dc in next ch; rep from * across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2 Sc and dc in first dc, *skip next sc, sc and dc in next dc; rep from * across, skip last sc. Rep row 2 until afghan is about five feet long, do not fasten off. Ch 1, turn.
TRIM: Sc in each dc and dc in each sc along the top, hdc and sc in corner, for side*sc TWO times in each dc scallop and put TWO dc in each valley* (unless this is too much and super-waffly for you–drop from TWO to ONE one or both) to next corner, working an extra 2 sc at last st, sc evenly across bottom, hdc and dc in corner, then work along side edge as before, put an extra 2 sc at last st, join with slip slip st, fasten off and call the doctor for the hernia it will give you to lift this sucker onto the bed.
