Great idea: "For this blanket, Jane used double moss stitch and knit five "scarves" that were then sewn into one big blanket." Find a scarf pattern (or two) and then make scarves in to a blanket. More interesting than knitting a whole blanket!
Flowered Shawl: Free pattern-diagram form, for those that understand them. The adjoining stitches and directions however, are in some other language-but to a seasoned crocheter I'm sure you could figure out that part.so lovely it is worth a shot!
