Spiderman's Afghan
I have 2 little grandsons who are eyeing this project. I think I'll have to put it up until I have made a 2nd one so they can each have one. The final round had over 750 stitches in it. Holy Moly it took forever to get around it by the end.

I got the pattern here: http://sites.google.com/site/muro73/patternsinenglish

That's awesome!
750 sts and all those ends to weave in!!!

You will certainly have to have both finished before giving.

Yes - spoken from one knitter to the other - ENDS TO WEAVE IN is right!

That turned out AWESOME! I'm sure your grandsons will love them!

I had seen this pattern online and bookmarked it for future use, but I found the idea of crocheting the vertical lines a little intimidating (my crochet skills are pretty weak! ). Was it as difficult as I'm thinking, or should I suck it up and give it a try?

I'm crochet - impaired, and this was absolutely not difficult. You could do it.

Good to hear that the crochet portion wasn't too difficult (and that I'm not the only one who's crochet-impaired! ). I'll definitely be giving it a try in the future! Thanks!

That turned out so neat!! The black lines really make it look like a spider web. I dislike having to make the same thing twice, especially two in a row. But 2 little grandsons are a big reason to persevere.
