Hello again lovely friends. How are you today?
I’ve been busy this past week finishing off a new pattern. Boy oh boy these things take longer than planned! Anyhoo, let me introduce you to Illusion. An easy mitered square pattern that is joined-as-you-go. Hooray! No sewing lots of little squares together!
And how about that 3D effect!
Coming up with a name for this one had me stumped so I put a call out on instagram and had such a fantastic response. With over 200 responses there were so many great suggestions I just couldn’t choose but finally settled on Illusion as it was suggested several times and it does in fact fit the design quite nicely. So Illusion it is.
Just popping in with a quick update.
I’ve just recently started another version of Illusion, this time using Scheepjeswol Stone Washed yarn which I’m finding is working perfectly for this pattern (no affiliation, just my personal opinion). It’s so lovely and soft and the mottled colours add a whole other dimension to the design.
Look how lush ….
- 4.5mm hook
- Colours: Smokey Quartz – 11 balls, 1 ball each of Lemon Quartz, Coral, Yellow Jasper, Corundum Ruby, Canada Jade, Red Jasper, Deep Amethyst, Amazonite and Blue Apatite, 2 balls Green Agate (which I will also use for the border).
I will have lots of leftovers of the contrast colours so another project with this snugly soft yarn is sure to happen!
Until next time
