Dear Reba - I'm new on this site and not sure how to properly get in touch with you about this crocheting technique you asked about in 2007.  I also have a couple of peices made by a long-dead relative that are like this - did you ever get a pattern?  would you share with me if you did?  Thank you.

Thanks for pulling this thread up out of deep recesses of the board!  I don't know how I missed it.

Anyhow, I tried this out using the instructions Scribble found:

And it worked out just fine.  

Here's the front:

And the back:

It leaves big holes, which is something to be aware of depending on what you want to make using this technique... but using a tighter starting mesh might work... hmm...

ETA: just squinted some more at the pictures the original poster posted, and it looks like there's 3 dc on each bar of the mesh instead of the 2 dc that I did.
