It's really bugging me that I can't post my finished projects on my blog!   Cheesy  I spotted this pattern this summer when my mom gave me some of her "old" crochet magazines (this was from Annie's Favorite Crochet, December 2004).  I immediately thought of my in-laws.  Partially because their family room has several of these colors.  I started it back in Sept/Oct.  I'm glad I did! - it took a long time to finish.  At times the whole thing seemed "tedious" (same stitches), so I ended up switching off to other projects for something different.  It wasn't a difficult pattern.  You basically create a "grid" like filet crochet of DC, Ch stitches and then dozens of chains that are woven into the grid to get the plaid look.    But I think it turned out great!  It's really warm since in most places you have two layers of worsted weight yarn.

That is really cool! I love the close-up picture. It almost looks like it is woven (although, I guess that it kind of is). I would love to know more about the process!

I must endeavor to understand how that works, so I can be a total nerd and make it in Ancient Black Watch.
