Skill Level:

intermediate skill level requirement Advanced

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • There are no specific skills you need to have to work this pattern, since all techniques used will be explained in an illustrated appendix. However, this is not a beginners pattern.

Pattern Description:

This is a patchwork blanket featuring one of Dutch grafic artist M. C. Eschers famous tessellations.

The fish are knit separately and sewn together later. They are shaped by different stitch patterns (rib pattern, seed stitch, garter stitch) as well as short rows which is all written down in two charts. An illustrated appendix explains all techniques used including sewing together the fish and cutting/steeking. To save ink you might decide to print the pattern directions only, i.e. pages 1-8 (and not the appendix).

The straight edges of the blanket are formed by cutting. There will be no parts of fish wasted, I promise!

Finally a stocking stitch edging makes for the perfect finish.

I almost started designing right from the beginning as I had no patience for following directions. I always need a challenge when I knit. I love to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. Then ...
