Crochet Afghan Blanket

I have completed my crochet Wonky Afghan or blanket. I used acrylic yarn and four loops to each stitch so it is a thick warm blanket and took quite a while to do. I used a lot of yarn and as many colours as I could find. It measures 72"x 72" approximately give or take as the sides are wonky though I think it adds to the design. I should have counted the stitches but kept going. This will cover comfortably a double bed with good amount of overhang at the sides. I am wondering whether to add an edging though with the loops it won't hook easily and it may not need it as it looks just as good as it is. I am overall very pleased with it and it is very colourful! This is the pattern I used. Chain however many you need for the size of blanket you want. Beginning row: Make four loops into 3rd chain from hook then draw through all four loops making a nice plump stitch (for the first row only in every second chain stitch to end) First row: Make four loops and draw all four loops do this for every stitch. Second row: One single crochet miss one stitch to end For a little change of pattern as a decorative edge a few rows from each end of blanket. One, four loop stitch, chain one, miss one four loop stitch to end.
