I'm sure your mat will work out quite beautifully for what you want it to do! Crochet always works it's magic one way or the other. And I'm really looking forward to seeing how this bit of magic turns out...

And DCM, thank-you for confirming my strongly-held suspicion that in the .pdf of the pattern, the stitches shown simply cannot result in the accompanying photos.
The pdf looks like it's a scanned copy from one of the older stitch pattern books so the designer of the blanket may not be the stitch designer. Be that as it may, the designer of the blanket may have done any number of things differently...
