Cubine Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

It’s surprising that optical illusions and perspective designs are not a more frequent subject of crochet patterns. They are a great way to bring a taste of MC Escher into your rooms and beyond that they can be super attractive and a very pleasant challenge to make. The Cubine Blanket is a wonderful example of how a 2D design uses perspective planes to create an illusion of a 3D grid. The really neat thing, is that from opposite sides, it will give a very different illusion. Links to free patterns are under the photos.

This pattern will surely be appreciated by young people.  A modern, geometrtic pattern consisting of cubes stacked on each other creating a 3D illusion. The finished blanket measures approximately 56” x 88”and fits on a full-sized bed, but you can adjust the size according to your needs. You can also choose as many colors as you like, but to get a full 3D effect you will have to use at least 3 colors.
