I don't use the word "epic" very often, but it's the first one that comes to mind with this blanket!

The stats:
Yarn: Bernat Satin scraps, approximately 2835 yards
Hook: 5.5mm, I/9
Technique: Jacob's Ladders
What's new? : going in odd directions and criss-crossing them
Time to make: 8 days.  Seriously.   Seriously.

I worked on this while my fiance played the Mass Effect 3 free demo:


Here's a close-up:


And the back:




The question now, is... what am I going to work on when the game actually does come out??

I would love a pattern for this.  How did you get the criss cross effect?
