I notice there is no size given. What would be the approximate finished dimensions?

Hi dbbender50--Thanks for your comment. The size of the afghan will depend on the crochet hook and the yarn that you're using...but on average, the blanket should be about 40x50" when completed. Hope that helps!--FC Editors
