"Vintage Stripe..." original can be found through about three click thrus, or search for "Vintage Vertical Stripe Crocheted Blanket Pattern". She has a blog tutorial, and (separately) a crochet along on ravelry. It is basically a very long DC worked into the 'space between' . Very pretty.
Solveig's harlequin blanket - easy pattern for diamond motifs (link on page to full tutorial), plus she gives instructions on a nice flat joining method (rather than a raised seam). Lovely blog with other free patterns - she's also here on Pinterest :-) . . . . ღTrish W ~ http://www.pinterest.com/trishw/ . . . . #crochet #afghan #throw
