Last night I finished the Chocolate Box afghan. Imay still give it a border of black. New Yorker magazine included for scale.
The pattern is called Chocolate Box in Jan Eaton's 200 Crochet Blocks, because she used browns for her sample. But surely there's another name for it that's not based on its colors but more on its structure. If anyone knows, please let me know.
In any case, I'm really happy with the way it turned out. There's a little bit of yarn left over, a few yards here and there. Those I'll save for another afghan or maybe I'll make them up into flowers for embellishing some future project like some knit and felted purses.
