When I first started crocheting I didn't know much about yarn so I bought a ton of worsted weight acrylic yarn only to discover it's not very useful for the projects I wanted to make. So I bought a massive hook and took four strands of yarn and went to town with HDC. This blanket helped get rid of my yarn stash so that I don't feel guilty buying yarn for specific problems. It's warm, colorful, and was an easy project. Here are some pictures. To give you a size idea, it covers a full bed.
