How big is it finished?

The beauty of Catherine Wheel afghan is that you can make it any size you want - even the pattern states "Once youve worked the length desired then finish with 1 row of black." Just know that the base chain for any Catherine Wheel is to chain any multiple of 10 sts, 7 sts. (I dont know how this pattern starts with 50 chain.) I have made several Catherine Wheel items over the years (2 afghans, a few pillows 3 scarfs). This pattern is only the basic instructions for a Catherine Wheel AND it is in Australian terminology meaning you may need to convert to North American terminology. If you are looking for a full afghan pattern is completed dimensions and yarn amounts, this may not be the one for you to use.

I didn't watch this show, but I do love "Big Bang Theory." Watch carefully for the afghan at Amy's apartment.

i am thinking of making the breaking bad afghan and need to know how many skeins of yarn for each color would i need..can someone tell me please...or tell me how i can find out...thank you...alison

What's up with this "Breaking Bad" name? It makes no sense to me and probably others who have never heard of the "Hit TV show". How about calling it "wheel stitch afghan"?

It got my attention. I watched the show, but I don't recall this afghan. Still, it brought me to this page and I like the design. It's all in fun. :)
