Recently finished Darby's Diagonal Stitch Blanket. Pattern can be found here http://www.crochetcabana.com/stitches/diag-box-st.htm It fits a queen sized bed. Definitely one of the larger projects I have worked on and finished. This was a gift for my boyfriend Smiley

Yes he did because he knows I worked on it for months! Plus it was his gift for getting into med school. Smiley

I REALLY like this. Yours more than the one in the tutorial. The one in the tut has too many holes for my liking...yours is nice and smooth (for lack of a better word)

Thanks! You're very sweet. I think it was because I used an H(5.00mm) hook for Vanna's Choice yarn on the blanket.

Wow that's awesome. I am always amazed at the blankets and afghans people post here. I don't think I have the patience to work on the same thing for so long (I make hats and ami mostly). I really like yours, the stitch and color combination is beautiful - classy and masculine - and it looks very well made. Great job!
