Add the size of the afghan that results. I need to make a lapghan that's 3' x 4', but without dimensions I have no way to adjust the amount of yarn (or accurately adjust the number of stitches in the width). Bernat seems to omit this important information from a lot of their free patterns.

I wish this could be knitted
