I made this for a friend's son.  It's 12 squares of Waldo's Puzzle made with Caron Simply Soft in White (or equivalent mill ends) and some rainbow pastel yarn I had in my stash from so long ago, I don't know what type it is.  The total dimensions are approximately 3' by 4'.

The middle interlocking rings are made of the pastel yarn and the remainder of the squares are white.  The squares are attached with slip stitches through the back loop only, leaving the front loops defined.  I added a three-row border: 1) sc all around with 3 sc in the corners, 2) sc, ch 1, sc, with 3 sc in the corners, and 3) repeat row 1.  I wove a long chain of the pastel thread through the gaps of the second row.  I originally wanted to add a full sc row of the pastel, but I didn't have enough and I really wanted to use up all the pastel yarn (gotta bust that stash!).  It ended up working--the weaving had a really nice effect.

After weaving the tails, I used a dot of Aleene's OK to Wash It fabric to secure the ends.

Thanks for looking.

I never saw that square before.  It is lovely. The rainbow coloured wool is beautiful with the white. Thanks for the pattern link
