Ravelry: Alabama Throw pattern by Jenna Wingate *Crochet
Rainbow blanket - Same as Slanty shell blanket
The Houndstooth Stitch creates the classic houndstooth pattern in crochet stitches. The Houndstooth pattern creates a fabric with moderate drape.
I'm sure this can be knitted, as well! Crochet blanket, easy and simple. this connects to a site in Spanish, but the pattern would be easy to do: mostly double crochet in dark gray with occasional single-crochet stripes of color.
Houndstooth Blanket, crocheted by knotalot from the *free* "Houndstooth Pet Scarf" pattern by Claire Ortega (pattern link on Ravelry page). The pet scarf is pretty cute, too :-) Easy pattern worked with SC & DC. I LOVE houndstooth!
