A fun corner-to-corner project inspired by Rosina’s Geo Rainbow Blanket from issue 90.
The main body of this rainbow bright bag is made in one piece using colour work that creates a fantastic illusion: it looks like it’s made of individual squares but it isn’t! This is a fun corner to corner project but be prepared to juggle a few balls!

This is a written pattern that also includes step by step photographs of the C2C stitch, how to change colour and how to make a c2c project into a rectangle.
