 I made a scarf with the same pattern and wanted to add some photos of it here too.
I used sugar n cream all cotton yarn so it's bulky and toasty.

My son is modeling it for me. It's made the same tunisian stitch way following the graph only this time I only made it 4 puzzle pieces wide and 16 puzzle pieces long. This way you join the sides and they match up in back where the joining seam is.

This is a front and back shot. (Sorry the back shot is over-exposed). I wanted to show the seam. Just make sure you use the correct matching colors while working on it so when you join the sides, the end puzzle pieces will match in color.

She is adorable!
I have three boys, 21, 19, & 17 years old and I still break out singing that song!

LOL! (Some Sesame Street songs you can just never get out of your head and they will stay with you forever!!!) (Not that that's bad either).

What a great idea to crochet one of the ladybugs!   Grin

I took a photo of my graph for those who wanted to make something using the pattern.
(Click on the photo to embigger.)  Wink

Each puzzle piece is 13 squares across, (minus the "heads". If you keep that number in mind you won't mess up.

The outlined area is what I used for the poncho. (But the third row is really a repeat of the first row).
All you really need to remember is two squares across and two squares up.
(But it does help to draw out more of it to visualize it in your mind better).

I'd love to see the things you all make with it!

shootingstar, my niece is autistic.
She's my baby sister's youngest.
She's really sweet and likes to knit!

PimpernelSmith, even though the pieces are rounded, when you click on the photos and enlarge them, you can see that the pieces are still graphed in the usual "blocky" way.

Thanks everybody for saying such nice things.  Grin

Yay! Another project to use your left-over yarn on!
(Please click on the photos to enlarge the images).

(Yes, that's me in the poncho).  Tongue

This was crocheted using a size J cabled afghan hook and left-over yarns consisting mostly of Red Heart and I Love This Yarns.

Here I've put my hands on my hips to spread out the poncho so you can see it all clearly.
(I wish I had a photo taken with my arms at my sides from the back too but I didn't think of it at the time.

The poncho is done Tunisian crochet style by repeating a small puzzle piece graph I made up myself using a pencil and graph paper.
The popular "symbol" for autism is a puzzle piece or puzzle pieces. Especially made with different colored pieces. I thought this would make a nifty pattern.

It is two seperate panels which I joined together after finishing them. The end of one panel is joined to the side of the other. And that panel's end is joined to the side of the first panel. (I hope all that makes sense).

Finally, I trimmed the edges in single crochet stitch with a combo of Moda Dea's Chichi, (mmm, soooo soft), and Fun Fur. This stopped any curling that there was and also filled in the part around the neck to make it nice and toasty.

Now, all I need is a nice cool day to wear it.
(Too bad it's becoming hotter every day).  Undecided

edit: I've added a puzzle piece scarf to the end of this post. I think it's page three. Grin
200  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: The Times They Are A-changin'/ Bob Dylan Afghan on: May 06, 2008 04:57:44 AM

It's tunisian crochet using a size J cabled afghan hook.

After the two pieces were done, I single crochet around them both, and then joined them in the middle. (On the back you can see a crocheted seam.)

Then I single crocheted around the whole thing in black.
Then, there are two rows of 5 triple crochet shell clusters.
The first in blue all the way around, the second alternating red/white shells on the top and bottom and black/white shells on the sides. (I didn't have enough red for the sides but the black works fine).
