There were so many naming options for this beautiful, textured, geometric blanket pattern. Some said it reminded them of a cathedral ceiling, or of Victorian tiles, or even intricate sand art. The blanket is made up of octagons, squares and 2 different triangles, all joined together with simple whip stitch so it looks seamless when it is finished. The design is finished off with a knit-look ribbed edging.
