This is Tunisian Crochet & is based upon my original 'Fools the Eye' free pattern. Added PDF download link 2/17/2010 for your convenience.
Substitute Lion Brand Suede- Mocha for Patons SWS Natural Coal
The study used 1 ball of each yarn- 3 total & is about 18"x24". It's a good petghan size
Used N Hook with cable. Gauge is not as important as the drape of the fabric made. It should NOT be dense & inflexible, but drape fluidly.
Lifesize look at color play
