Normally, I would say this piece of filet crochet was "genius", but it's actually SUB-Genius. Flickr user Crochet Sera-Sera posted this piece to the Craft Magazine Flickr pool. This rendering of Bob Dobbs was created with the charting assistance of Deacon Pan Demonium, minister of propaganda for the Church.
If you're interested in learning filet crochet, which is supposedly easier than you might think, here's a tutorial. I wasn't able to find the chart for the Bob Dobbs pattern--if anybody has it, please let me know!
