I think it's in Charted Knitting Designs.  I got the book at the library a while ago and xeroxed it.  I'm pretty sure you don't have to use #2 needles to knit the spiders.  The charts should work with any needle size and gauge, though they might be a little skinnier or fatter depending on your stitch:row ratio.

You have inspired me!  I found the book with the pattern at my library.  But advise me, realistically, do you think I can work this into an blanket when I've only worked off written, U.S.A. published, patterns?  It looks a little scary, but I really need it for a present I'm making.....?

Thanks --

If you haven't worked from charts before here are a few ideas:

1.  Xerox the dictionary of symbols from the front of the book so it's readily accessible.  Better yet, copy the symbols just you'll need and their meaning onto the chart.
2.  Cross of rows after you've completed them with arrows indicating the direction you knitted. 
3.   Make a sample out of cotton yarn.  That way you can practice and you'll have made a nifty little dishcloth too.  I hate letting knitting go to waste!

Hope this helps.  If all else fails you can always translate the chart into text such as one finds in commercial patterns, but boy would that take forever.

Excellent advice -- Thank You!  I can almost never make myself to an involved practice run expressly because I hate to waste all that work only to rip it out -- what a great idea to use cotton and keep it!
