Thanks, judypudy, for identifying the pattern.  I love the elegant, Aran-look that using one color gives the afghan.  I hate doing all single crochet, but I may try this one any way.

I found some pics of finished afghans.  Amazing how different they look with different colors.

And here are a few more patterns.  Look for Navajo afghans in the right column:

You guys absolutely ROCK.  I just can't believe that in less than 48 hours this mystery has been solved.  Big NYC hugs and kisses from me and big Houston thank yous from Mom, who will be delighted when it's a decent hour and I can call to tell her the news!

I completely agree, Judy.  The baby colors give the afghans an entirely different look from either the solid or the stripes.  I'm thinking that I might start with a pillow or two.  One of the patterns that I Googled had directions on how to adjust the pattern for larger or smaller pieces.
