The name of a repeated tessellating design, like the one Jane has used in this design, is called an 'Ogee' pattern in Arabesque design. It took Jane a few weeks to get the design of these blocks right; initially she came up with lots of really complicated ways to create this motif, but in the end it was so simple - funny how sometimes a design process can take so long and then the outcome can be so easy to make!
The pattern for the lantern shape motif is based on a granny hexagon pattern, but Jane has made a few changes to come up with the curved design the tessellates.
The shawl uses 13 balls of Jamieson's Spindrift
The scarf uses 8 skeins of Coop Knits Socks Yeah!
The blanket uses 12 balls of Stylecraft Life DK
