Perplexing Net, I found IT!

Finally found THE pattern for my muse project. I am referring to the yarn I made by chaining some thin boucle into a thicker yarn (see previous post) . Discovered at this blog:
http://sarahloiscrochet.blogspot.com/
I started a swatch out of a scrap of pink and could not stop. This is the most fun I have had crocheting. I love this pattern. The pictures of mine do not give it justice, but between mine and the pictures posted on Sarah's blog you might be able to see why you would want to jump into a project with this stitch.




Here is a close-up and then one to show what my 4x4"swatch turned into because I could not stop-then I ran out of pink.




Go to her blog spot to see her step by step with pictures.
Here is what she posted:
>{Crochet Pattern: Perplexing Net
This pattern is a formula. You can make your special project with any length and width you want. And you can make your item horizontally or vertically!
Starting chain depends on the direction you work and width of your project, but is a minimum of 16 stitches.
to add width, add multiples of 6 stitches onto the original 16 for the formula to work out properly.
[16, 22, 28...100... 154... 184... 202...etc]
Row 2: SC in first CH from hook. *CH 2, SC in 3rd CH. Repeat from * to end of row. Turn.
Row 3: CH 2. *DC in Space before sc of previous row. DC in space after sc of previous row. CH 2. SC in next sc of previous row. CH 2. Repeat from * till end of row. DC in last st.
Row 4-???: CH 2. *DC in Space before sc of previous row. DC in space after the sc in previous row. CH 2. SC in first dc of the previous row. CH 2. Repeat from * till end of row. DC in last st.
Repeat row 4 until desired length. [this is a very stretchy pattern lengthwise, be careful you don't crochet it too long. But the width remains pretty much the same during use.]
END Row: CH 2, SC in 3rd st (sc below). *CH 2. SC in 3rd st (1st dc below). CH2. SC in 4th st. Repeat from * till end of row.

I cannot find any way to contact JadedByEntrophy, but did become a member with all my contact info. I see that she started her blog about the same time as I started this one, but there is only the one post about perplexing net. Hopefully there will be more and that she will contact me soon.
See earlier post about how this yarn was "made". Have already started my project; in progress pictures below. More to come.
