A thoroughly modern take on blackwork embroidery, the hexagram (a shape made of two equilateral triangles) is a symbol of spiritual power and protection used in many religious and mystical traditions. BaaMeow has given this one a new spin, inspired by the Penrose Triangle. This pattern contains some interesting subversions of counted stitchwork and provides a fun challenge for the confident stitcher –  as well as creating a uniquely beautiful piece of blackwork illusion.

This pattern is also available in a color version which is exclusive to Maydel!
