Notes

I love this soccer ball illusion. After knitting the illusion panel, I picked up stitches around the edges, and knit another square the same size so that I could use this as a cushion cover.

The knitting part is finished, but I’m undecided about how I’m going to finish this so that I can wash it frequently.

Also, I’m a little nervous about using it, as it’s dustier here and the bleachers get a lot more dirty than they do in Ontario. It would have to be washed after nearly every use.

Shadow illusion has 78 stitches, 79 ridges, all in Cascade Yarns 220.

Edging mostly in Cascade, with a bit of Madil Yarns on the top and bottom.

Chevrons mainly in Cascade, but portions also in SMC select.
