The Elly’s afghan/blanket was inspired by abstract geometric art. I find geometric abstraction very eye-catching and as a knitter, very knittable.
A matching set of a blanket and cushions can be created by using a quarter of the pattern for a cushion cover.
Also, the pattern can be used for making a wall hanging instead of a blanket. Why not use finer yarn and different fibre, like cotton or acrylic for smaller wall decoration?

Working in intarsia is fairly easy for an advanced beginner who is comfortable with the basic knit and purl stitches.
The pattern is charted and written out.
The pattern is tech edited and test knitted.
