Response to hedgehog (Original post)

17. I made a basket-weave crocheted afghan once that doubled as a bedspread that looked like these pics.

Once I got the basket weave mastered, this thing was very fun to make. I hemmed two edges in fringe.

I made it in the 1970' or 80's I think and used a heavy acrylic yarn. It's still good looking and extremely warm. Washes and dries great.
