The Optic Blanket was not designed for the faint of heart. It is a free knit blanket pattern meant to challenge you every step of the way. However, the final product is more than worth the struggle of this advanced knitting pattern. The knit afghan is reversible, having two completely different patterns on either side of the project. A series of diamonds decorate one side while spiraling squares decorate the opposite side. This is a visually interesting knitted blanket pattern that looks good and feels good wrapped around your shoulders.
