a friend wanted me to make her a cowl, so I wanted to come up with something a little more creative.. so I did..
it’s a puff stitch type design and I found the pattern on the other side of yarn.. it was to make a blanket so I just did it with my cowl.
hope you like!
according to the instructable:
Shadow knitting, or illusion knitting, is a process of knitting such that the finished piece has a hidden image only viewable from an angle. The effect is created by alternating rows of two colored yarns so that the raised stitches from one row block out the flat stitches of another row. The finished work looks like a simple striped pattern from the front, but when viewed from an angle, the “hidden” image appears.
I use to only be interested in making garments that I thought were more worthwhile, like for example cardigans, dresses and coats etc. but after I made my first pair of socks I stopped thinking of these smaller items as a waste of wool. It is important that you understand this fact very early on…
