Racing Car Throw
This really cool throw for kids certainly has a lot of personality. Like other people, I have a WIP for this throw in my bin. I did mine in New York Taxi Cab Colours.
This throw is an optical illusion. You look at it and think the red square in the middle is the square itself with the racing car flag look surrounding it. That’s far from the truth.
Look at it from a different perspective. The stripes of the race car flag are directly in the middle of the Corner to Corner (C2C) square. We have another afghan that has been made this way.
The Baby Diamonds Afghan is produced in the same manor. It appears the squares turned diagonally when it fact it’s just the stripes down the middle of each of the squares that create the illusion. The same thing is happening with the Race Car Throw.
Now, having done the race car version, but of course I need to be spanked for not finishing it, the squares in the race car version as much smaller than the baby diamonds baby blanket.
I saw the Race Car Version has an opportunity to play with kid’s colours and generic theme ideas to make it personal to someone’s taste. It’s pretty cool!
