CIRCLE

This simple design appears to have a circle on a contrasting background. It is one of the sections of our Illusion Shapes Blanket.

Most of our samples were worked in Double Knitting yarns. They can be made in yarn of any thickness. This one was made in chunky yarn to show that the effect works just as well.
