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.

Knitting for me is all about experimenting, trying new things, re-discovering old stuff and mixing everything together. I also like a challenge when I knit. I enjoy immensely to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. - Then I find a way to do it. It is just wonderful that I can write down my ideas at home, upload them here on Craftsy and instantly share them with other knitters all around the world. I so love the internet!
