I saw the TapestryCrochet.com
site and decided I had to give it a try. I also wanted to do something original, so I designed a star. I am very happy with the results, (although I was working with whatever yarn I had on hand and the colors aren't the best combination). I may do a little more to finish off the blanket- it's a gift for my pregnant neice (for her baby). It measures about 27 inches square.

The whole thing is done in single crochet (size K hook) and I created this grid and arranged the little tile-like shapes to create the pattern. I use a graphics program called Canvas, which allows me to create layers. I put the grid in one layer and the little tiles in another. When I'm done I print and stitch!
(If you save the image you will have the full size grid).
Thanks for looking...
