New year – new pattern.
Steve has now designed more than a dozen illusion blankets. You can see them all here. This new one is amongst my favourites.
There are many reasons why I particularly like it
- Dolphins appeal to people of all ages so it isn’t just a baby blanket
- It is very easy
- The dolphins are on a garter stitch background (Many of the blankets are alternate ridges of garter and stocking stitch.)
- The outlines of the dolphins are very streamlined so it is easy to check that no stitches are out of place
- It reminds me of yin yang
The blanket in the photo is about 80 cm x 100 cm (32” x 40”). It could be made much bigger with a wider border all round.
