Instructions1. For the front, I used the F hook and the Marquetry pattern (http://www.crochetpatty.com/patterns/thread/intarsio.html) with the following modifications:
Catch the beginning end in the first round of tcs. This eliminates needing to weave it in later.
After row 6, repeat row 5. Then do another row like this, but increase the chains between to 11 stitches.

What was your inspiration?
A potholder pattern I found on Ravelry that was nice, but difficult to interpret the translation of, and a coaster pattern I found a few years ago (linked in instructions).
What are you most proud of?
Figuring out a workable increase pattern for the back!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's not as complicated as it may look!
