I am always browsing and looking for new crochet patterns and when I saw the pattern called Trellis and Chevron I just had to try it.  I did not care for the Chevron part of the afghan but the Trellis part was a real eye grabber!  Pattern link can be found here:

I thought if I made it a bit bigger it would be good for a single bed but I guesstimated it wrong and unfortunately it's a bit narrow.  This will be a great warmer for the fall evening outside or curled up on the couch though.  The pattern was easy to follow but I found that piecing the "squares" together was a little tough.  Once I reached the end though I had a pretty good rhythm going.  Part way through I vowed to never do it again,  but I totally would.  Pictures show afghan on a single bed.  Thanks for viewing.

Wow! This is a stunner. The colors and scale make it a super charming accent.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
