Illusion knitting produces ‘hidden’ pictures in the finished item! It’s not complicated but can be tricky to get the hang of at first. Simple stripes become much more as you view the finished fabric from different directions. Join us as we learn the ins and outs of knitting with this ‘magic’ technique while creating a square washcloth – or a longer scarf.
