Illusion Knitting

Look at that! You can actually see the word, V-rod, on that scarf.
When you look straight on at the scarf, it looks like it has just a striped design. It really is an illusion.
I designed and knit this in Cascade 220 a few years back when we DID have a Harley V-rod motorcycle.
I have seen illusion knitting on Knitty Gritty and visited various sites on the web. I just found a really good place, here, with FREE patterns. A really good book called 'Shadow Knitting' by Vivian Høxbro is a good source. The author really liked my scarf!!
There's even a yahoo group with almost 1000 members!!

I love that, it fascinates me.I don't need more than one scarf, but I see about a dozen I would like to do!

Thanks for the compliment on my Icelandic shawl, too.

Wow, that's cool! I'm doing a blanket (projected finish date: some time in 2020) that's supposedly going to show a dragon when it's done.

You've given me hope that it actually *will*!
