There are 16 abstract patterns, 15 for the blanket and 1 for the pillow. I did not make the pattern used in the pillow. I finished the blanket last Friday and immediately started on one of the two blankets I'm making for our living room.

Each square is just rows of single crochet. The color changes are the tricky part. Well, not tricky, just challenging to keep the yarn from tangling into one large knot.

The blanket itself is beautiful! I may never do it again since it was so time-consuming and a bit frustrating, but I would consider it for the right project, with the right colors, for the right person...

Paula returns from vacation (a week-long Mexican cruise!) on Monday so I'll give the blanket to her then.
