Just finished a baby afghan for a little boy this morning and thought I would share. It is done in an tunisian entrelac spiral that really highlights self striping yarn. I used Bernat Mosaic in Ambrosia and a regular K crochet hook. Thinking of making another in colorway Calypso which is Rainbow colored. I just love the way the colors turned out. Blanket measures about 32"x32" right now but have thoughts of keep on going and putting this on my sofa.

Thanks for looking and Happy Crocheting :hook

That is beautiful and I love Bernat Mosaic yarn!

Please let us know when the pattern is available! I'm envisioning a wall-hanging for one of the walls of my office...

No, this is not the log cabin entrelac. This one has increases and decreases in the corners to form a spiral. This one would also look good I think in Red heart collage or the new lion brand tweed stripes that I have seen at walmart.

Let me know if you would like to test, I am in the process of writing it now. I need to add some diagrams and should be done tonight or tomorrow morning.
