I designed the Eye Dazzler Sweater as a tribute to the eye dazzler rugs that my people (Navajo) create. “Eye dazzler” refers to the optical illusions found in many rugs before the turn of the century. These designs are not the main type of rugs that you will find, but they are a part of a more individualistic style. My version of the optical illusion uses Dreamstate Spincycle yarn accompanied by the wedge design to allow the eye to drift and search throughout the pattern. I love this sweater and I’m so grateful to have this idea finally out of my head and made into a physical design.
