First pictures...

...with my very first illusion knitting piece. I figured I would do some kind of simple design like a diamond or a heart just to begin.

Attached is what I have so far.

It's a LOT easier than I thought when I was first looking through all sorts of patterns and how-to articles and such..., I went to Wikipedia and lo and behold, there was what I needed in plain and simple terms.


It's not done yet, but, at least, here's a bit of progress.

I'm glad to hear that it is not that difficult. It is very impressive. I have read so much about it so it is nice to see your lovely piece of work.

I want to try this too, my son got a look at the dark mark scarf from one of the links, and now he wants it, I might attempt it for him for xmas since you dared to go there and found it easier than it looks. It looks great. Pics when it's finished please!

Very nice! Wikipedia is a beautiful thing. What kind of yarn are you using?

For this, I'm just using up some of what I have left over from a couple of pound skeins of plain ol' Wal-Mart brand "Mainstays" red and white...
