Default My Mom crocheted me a Lead Blanket....

Mom made this, it weighs a ton and is warm as toast.
However, she doesn't know the name of the stitch, and the gal that taught it to her did not know either.....

....anyone?

Thanks!

DM

I couldn't find the name of it in my bags of tricks DM. I'm still looking though!

Crosshatch comes to mind for some reason...

It's a basket weave stitch DM.

Don't know here, but I love it. It'd be warm as a sweater, huh?

The local sheriff's office asked if she could make them a couple dozen "vest-shaped" using this stitch.... they said it'll stop anything short of an armor-piercing missile!

It'd likely keep them warm as well, yup....
