In addition to the eye candy of harmonic symmetry, the intriguing effect of tessellation is that your focus flips back and forth between different motifs that may appear as pieces in a puzzle. The motifs are often shown in two colors that give the impression of positive and negative forms.

For this sock pattern, I chose a tessellation of stars and small squares worked in different stitch patterns. Because I chose a single yarn, the optical effect is subtle. For a more prominent effect, use the stranded colorwork technique to work each section in a different color.
