Piecing it all together

July 11, 2013

By the time I’d finished each piece of the Illusion Cube blanket, I’d knit more than the required 56 hexagons. There were a few mistakes along the way — duplicates of color combos, short-sided “cubes” (at least two of those). But finally, I was ready:

56 knitted hexagons for blanket

Sewing it all together seemed pretty easy-peasy as I started. The blanket is stitched together in quasi-stripes — based on the border colors of the hexagonal pieces (don’t you love that word?!). I was so pleased with the first 1 1/2 rows that I captured the progress in a photo.

Wait a minute — THAT doesn’t look right. The colors were lovely but something about the stripes caught my eye — and not in a good way.

Blanket pieces sewn together at wrong angles

Fortunately I hadn’t gone too far with the second row. So I snipped and un-sewed, laid the whole thing out on the table, and placed each piece in the correct spot. And started sewing again.
