Catitude XL contains ten patterns that use the Creative Grids Cat's Cradle XL Tool. CGRDH1XL uses the same technique as the original Cat’s Cradle Tool- but adds eight larger sizes--finished 4-1/2in to 8in. Both tools let you combine squares and rectangles to magically create triangles. You do not need this book to understand how to use the Creative Grids Tool, but why not start with 10 fresh patterns, made quickly and perfectly with the tool. Sew together 36 of these 10 degree triangles to create a complete circle; 18 to create a half-circle; or 9 to create a quarter-circle.

Create perfect pieced hexagons with 2; 4; or 6 inch finished centers by squaring up each round of strips as you go. Since each round is squared up before the next set is added, the blocks created are perfect hexagons. Or use the markings to cut 2 to 8 inch finished hexagons and every even size in between.

Note: This tool cuts finished hexagons that measure 8 inches from side to side. From point to point, the cut hexagon is slightly less than 10 inches so they can be cut from 10 inch pre-cuts.
Pattern requires inset seams? No problem - use the drilled holes to mark the seam allowance.
