Thanks for the explanation fantasticmio...I tried to google and got patterns that don't make a lot of sense to me (I've only ever done very basic crochet).

It's just wonderful!

Wow. That's all I can say. I've crocheted all my life and never seen and/or done anything like that.
Would you share where you found the directions? In a book or online?
I really wanna try that!

Beautiful work - beautiful choice of color.  Looks just awesome!  I've crocheted for years, and had never heard of this either. 
Yeah, I learned something new today!!  Woot-woot! Cheesy

I'm enchanted by this beautiful piece.  It's functional.  It's art.  It's been added to my list of 50 things to make/do/learn this year.  I just reserved a copy of "Crochet master class : lessons and projects from today's top crocheters" byJean Leinhauser and Rita Weiss.  Hopefully that's the book you were talking about...  ;-D

It is!  Judging from the reviews I've read of this book, I really should caution anyone thinking of buying it that it really is just an overview of a wide variety of crochet techniques.  There is a pattern for each technique (I think... I'm still looking through the book), but I believe that each section is meant to be more of a springboard.

Anyhow, for those asking me about where to get this pattern, I've added a note to my original post about it.  Basically, I don't have the pattern for this, but I am still looking into this technique and I'll share what I come across as I come across it.  In the mean time, try Googling "overlay crochet"
