The name of a repeated tesselating design, like the one Jane has used in this design, is called an ‘Ogee’ pattern in Arabesque design. It took Jane a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially she came up with lots of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!

The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but Jane has made a few changes to come up with the curved design that tesselates.

The stitches used in this project are ch, ss, dc, tr and dtr (UK terminology).

Size of the blanket approx. 155cm x 100cm
