An early present for a friend, who's a fan of Cap and Tony Tongue

The "pattern" was originally created by pixelpeople on Tumblr.


During Assembly, with iPad beside it as size referenceFinal Product

The whole thing weighed about half a kg when completed.

I did! And it's only now that I'm making a secret larger rug project that I thought of using excel grids instead.

That is so cool. I may have to puzzle out a Superman Chibi for a friend for next year.

What sort of squares did you use for it?

I used a book called 200 crochet blocks for blankets, throws and afghans. It was the beginning two rounds of the pattern "pinstripes". Below is all in US terms.
3ch (counts as 1dc), *[2dc, 1trc] into next dc, [1trc, 2dc] into next dc (corner made)** 1dc into next dr, repeat from * until you arrive at the original 3 ch, join with slip stitch
Then I just sc into all of the dcs in the previous row, with 2sc into every trc.

Hope that made sense!

Thanks =) It did get a little tiring doing the same square all the time, but the final product was worth it!
