Snuggle up under this Octagon — my new crochet pattern is here!
Started last year in December, the Funky Octagon Throw is finally finished. To be honest, I only worked on this for a few rounds before putting it down and working on other projects. When I was scanning through my drafts on ravelry last weekend, this caught my eye and I dug it out of my project box and really got to work. I swear, my hook was on fire at some times!
I love the optical effect you get if you make the stripes larger and larger. Three different stitches — mesh, cross stitches and clusters — make this a really fun project. I always wanted to design an octagon — mainly because the number eight is such a powerful number. It is associated with balance, power, luck, material wealth, and harmony — and many more things, so eight is quite the super-number! You can choose a neon color like I did or make it in one color or use eight colors 🙂
