This pattern shows you how to knit magic squares with their own shadow so that the colours seem to float above the surface.

Any weight of yarn can be used and, although I have used my squares to make a cushion cover, this pattern could also be used to knit squares for a blanket or bag.

Less than 10g of each of the bright colours is used to knit a cushion so this is a good project for using up small amounts of yarn.

The back of the cushion features a different, simple magic square design which can be assembled in many ways. Two patterns for the price of one!

All my ravelry patterns are free to download but, if you enjoy them, please consider making a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, a charity which funds research and supports the families of children with a liver disease. You can do this easily by going to my fundraising page

Happy Knitting!
