Somebody mentioned that the square looked like an ice cave and I relly liked that name so I am keeping it. Here are the first 13 rows. I will put the rest up today hopefully. This pattern is untested except by me, so If you have any questions please send me a message. Here is a link to a spike stitch tutorial if you need it http://www.crochetme...ike_stitch.html

Nice square, definitely unique. I'll have to try it, I think my husband would love that one.
Insane to have so much yarn? I'd be insane WITHOUT it.

Thank you Suzan. You went to a lot of work for this square and I know how difficult the writing out part can be. :wlol

Love it and will be a good patient little member until you can post the rest. :hug
