While sorting through old patterns—some rejected—I ran across an abandoned project and an unusual-looking pattern. I consulted my notebook and then my printed copy of Weave-It Magic Squares. Looks like I asked, “What if…?” on the “Plain and Fancy” pattern. Mine isn’t a perfect square, and I’ve crocheted around the border, but I thought I’d share it here in case anyone is interested.
