This clever design uses simple geometric shapes to create an optical illusion

The blanket is constructed from motifs that are worked flat then stitched together at the end. Most of the blanket is made from three-colour hexagons that use very basic intarsia. The hexagons are squared off using smaller shaped panels, and the blanket is finished with a simple crocheted border.
