For your Asian themed kitchen I have designed a curtain or panel that measures 16x25 inches. The squares are 70x100. It's bigger than my usual projects in that it uses about 800 yards of thread, but the simple bold graphics won't make make you go crazy!
My stitch of choice is the extended double crochet and my hook is a #7 steel.
