Snuggle up under a musical delight.

This thick, warm blanket makes use of a modified one colour version of a technique known as illusion, or shadow, crochet.

To achieve the illusion of an image, stitches are worked in a combination of back loops, free loops and both loops normally.

The pattern contains full instructions for working the blanket along with explanations and an illustration of how to work the stitch.

There is a chart available, although the size of the graph is, in general, impractical to work from. That said, it is available for those that have the ability to view/print it or just want it for cross referencing. Drop me a line (with your order details) and I’ll email it out to you as I cannot upload the file type to Ravelry.

To view the chart, you will need Microsoft Excel (or the free excel Viewer which can be downloaded from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10).

GAUGE You may work with any yarn, using an appropriate hook - of course, size of the blanket will vary.

Using Aran yarn with a gauge of 3sts and 3 rows to 1” (as written), the finished size will be 58½ x 105½”

Using double knit yarn with a gauge of 4sts and 4 rows to 1” (as written), the finished size will be 44 x 78½”.

You will need 4265 - 4374 yards (3900 - 4000 m) of yarn.

The pattern is available in UK and US terms.
