Op Art Checkerboard Chart for Tapestry Crochet

Chart © Amy Solovay, Licensed to About.com, Inc.

Use this free op art checkerboard chart for creating crochet projects; you'll use the tapestry crochet technique, crocheting overtop of unused colors as you work.

The chart is also useful for other needlecrafts, particularly cross stitch. It would be a fun design to cross stitch on top of crochet.

This chart is unique because the striped pattern creates an op art effect, or optical illusion. The effect is more noticeable with certain color combinations than others, and you can have a lot of fun re-coloring this design in different ways.

Overall, it's a fun crochet pattern, and its likely to hold your interest the whole time you are crocheting it.

Coordinating Op Art Heart Chart

You can use this chart alone, but if you'd like to combine the design with a coordinating pattern, check out the op art heart chart that I've designed to go along with it. You can create afghan squares using these two charts, and join the squares in an alternating pattern to create a warm blanket. I am sure you can think of plenty of additional creative ways to use these designs.
