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.

Day 18: Do you knit English or Continental?
Neither, really. I knit some weird combination of Irish cottage, English, and sometimes continental. I don’t “throw” the yarn, I just bend my finger and it’s wrapped. I taught myself to knit and this is just the way it came out. I move my hands too much, but oh well.
When I work in the round, I purl through the back loop, wrapping the yarn the opposite way.
Holy crap, that ringing is loud.
I’ve received a couple request for help on learning to crochet. I personally learned to crochet by watching videos on YouTube. I tried to learn by reading it in a book but I learn best by watching rather than reading. There are TONS of videos online to help people but I feel these are the best…
