We revisited our very popular Double Vision afghan design to create this illusion afghan or wall-hanging.

There are two illusions happening at the same time. When you look straight at the knitting you see 81 different shades although it is made from only nine different yarns. When you look from an angle you see smaller squares inside the larger ones.

The wall-hanging in the photo was made using DK yarn. Any type of yarn can be used, in any colours. Changing the yarn may result in a larger, or smaller piece. Mathematically nine colours should give 45 different permutations so should show 45 shades. Because of the illusion technique this pattern actually shows 81 different shades.

The pattern includes instructions for two different construction methods:
