It's Vintage; It's Modern. It's a 'modern' Granny Square Afghan pattern from a vintage issue of The Workbasket. This lovely made the front cover of the October 1966 issue.
Now, as I've commented on a variety of occasions, I don't know how to crochet (although it's planned for this fall when my crocheting friend returns). What always amazes me is the varying size of a crochet pattern. In this same issue, there is small angel wall piece (12" x 7") that has several pages worth of pattern details, while this one, has just two small columns. And ... it measures 62 x 67 without the fringe ! Go figure that.
Thanks for dropping by,
