Which way are the columns pointing?
Can you see hexagons … or octagons … something else?
An optical illusion based on regular octagons although the effect is of hexagonal-based prisms.
Making Waves evolved from playing with octagons. Look at the ends of the ‘columns’ in the photograph above. One end of each is obviously an octagon though it is in two colours - a dark, non-regular, hexagon and a lighter ‘curved’ piece. The darker piece gives the impression that you are looking at the end of a pipe or tube.

OPTICAL ILLUSION AFGHANS
Each column is made in one piece. The seven columns are then stitched together.
Use any yarn, in two colours, and needles of your choice.
The size of the afghan can be adjusted by making longer, or shorter columns, or by changing the number of columns.

Argh, I assembled wrong the first time which was a very time consuming pain in the butt. Second time it was a breeze because it was as it was supposed to be!
