Your favorite, easy afghan pattern?
Now that I've finished knitting two scarves, I'd like to knit an afghan. Last night I made slip covers for the throw pillows on the sofa and I'd like to find a nice red yarn to match for a chair on the other side of the room.
Does anyone have a favorite afghan pattern for beginning knitters? I'm not afraid to try new stitches and patterns... in fact that's one of the things I love about knitting. However, I think I'd prefer something simple, perhaps a nice rib, and not a lace pattern for this one. Our living room has a casual feel and our decor is Spanish -- if that makes any difference.
