I just finished an awesome jolly roger illusion scarf ( I would post the link but mylot has the cut and paste disabled *rolls eyes*) and it's great! Anyone else been doing any illusion knitting? know of any places where they help you design a pattern - I would love to have an illusion doggie pattern... or maybe an illusion pattern for my name!

Hmmm..I know the first SNB (Stitch and &itch) book has an illusion knitting pattern. It's an Alien. I have tried it yet, but I know people on my crafting board have had success with it. Check out this site too... www.freshislefibers.com/patterns/shadowknittinglinks.htm Hopefully I typed that in correctly, but they seemed to have a few patterns and some good links to more information.

I love illusion knitting, but haven't done any in a while. The last thing I did (I think..) was squares that became facecloths for my MIL. I learned from INKnitters, don't remember the issue number - but they had a nifty seahorse pattern and a snowflake. I've done both, and in the set for MIL, I also designed an angel and a Christmas tree (they were a Christmas gift). The three squares, alternated, would make a neat blanket, IMO. I'm also working on some other patterns - mostly holiday/seasonal...I like my jack-o-lantern square! Here's a question for other illusion knitters: what kind of chart do you use? I learned with one that has one chart row for every two rows of knitting, and that makes the most sense to me...but I know a lot of folks seem to prefer charts where the design is..."stretched", basically. Any preferences? ~Sara

i have never even heard of illusion knitting but i sounds really fun and i will have to learn how to do it and try it myself i think you should post the link where they help you to design a pattern so we all could try it (if you can post the link i know mylot has disabled the cut and paste buttons) i love knitting dog sweaters and am always looking for cool designs for dog sweaters or even just sweaters for myself haha
