I finished this blanket pretty quickly, but definitely not in 5 1/2 hours! It turned out a bit smaller than they say, because my stitches are tight, and I did not use fringe (Matthew voted for no fringe). This is still a beautiful lap blanket. I'm giving it away as a wedding gift and I hope they love it!
I used a Q hook and Lion Brand "Wool-Ease Thick & Quick" yarn in the color Grass.
