Red Heart® Super Saver: One Skein Is All You Need

I call them the "Supers."
A skein of Red Heart® Super Saver yarn is approximately 333m (364yds). This worsted acrylic yarn is described in Shop Red Heart's site:

"Super Saver has been America's best selling yarn for over 70 years. The great wash performance and no-dyelot solids makes this large skein the 'go-to' yarn for wearables, home accessories, and more."

With only 1 skein of Red Heart® Super Saver yarn, I was able to make this 23-in. x 24-in. small decorative throw (on the chair). Just add another skein to make it a full-fledged throw. Shade for this skein is Lemon (235). I'm actually planning to put this one in the car so I can use this to cover my legs when it gets pretty cold.
I used Susan Bates Silvalium® aluminum crochet hook (which you may pre-order here) size US J10 or 6.0mm for this.
I adapted this super easy (perfect for beginners) pattern from the original design by erin called "Single-Skein Blankie" published in Crochet Today! magazine's Jan/Feb 2010 issue.
The pattern uses another type of Red Heart® yarn, which, unfortunately, isn't still available locally so I used Super Saver instead. This pattern isn't free. Don't worry though because I found free ones on the internet which can be done using only 1 skein of Red Heart® Super Saver:

1. "Crochet One Skein Throw" by Red Heart
2. "20 Free Patterns for One Skein Projects..." a compilation on Crochet Concupiscence

If you're curious on how this yarn really feels, feel free to drop by GIGI Coffee & Cupcakes in the Felina Corporate Plaza lobby in Eastwood (just beside the Citibank building) this May 11 (Sat), between 12NN-2PM. This is actually my free time between my workshops on that day. I will have stocks of these Super Saver yarn which you could also purchase on site. A text message informing me in advance of your visit would be greatly appreciated. You may reach me at (0906) 269-5192. You may also order this yarn from me and I can have it delivered to your place.
