salmonmac, that's pretty. When I searched the striped part threw me because the OP mentions blocks but the pattern is worked in blocks. Seems I learn something new every day here, today's lesson is not to take too much for granted! Thanks for posting the link. I'm not sure I'd use that yarn but I think that pattern could be adjusted to just about any yarn. It might be just what I've been thinking about doing even.
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
