Very easy throw to make.  It's done with James C. Brett Marble Chunky, which is the softest yarn ever!







Here's where I got the pattern:http://www.crochetcabana.com/stitches/diag-box-st.htm

To help me figure out the stitch,  I had to consult YouTube for video instructions, but after
I got the hang of it, it went really smoothly.

I just absolutely love the colors on that yarn! Beautiful work. I think I may do as Kimi said she would do and bookmark this one. Smiley How big is it?

Thanks everyone..It looks to me like it's about 60" x 48". I'm not one for measurements or precision, I just made it to be long and wide enough to cover myself while lying on the couch.  (I'm not very tall!)  It is a very customizable size.

Love that stitch, and wow, the effect that yarn makes is amazing! Never would have thought of it, but that's really pretty... eyeing my self-striping sock yarn critically, thinking gloves...

I started one! I am using my striping yarn... it's not striping so well but it still looks pretty. We will see how big it turns out I guess. Like you said the stitch is pretty easy and size is customizable. Smiley Loving it.

Yay!  You started one  Cheesy   I would love to see some pics of it when you finish it. 

I found some of the same kind of yarn that I used on the Anniesattic.com, except they call it "Kertzer Marble Chunky."  I think my next box stitch project is gonna be one of those pink yarns.
