Mystical Lanterns

Jane Crowfoot

8 Page printed brochure pattern.

The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one Janie Crowfoot has used in this design, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took Janie a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; she initially came up with lots of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!

The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but Janie made a few changes to come up with the curved design the tessellates.

If you wish to use an alternative yarn for this project it is up to you to make sure you choose the correct yarn weight and length and that your chosen yarn achieves the correct tension.
