Scruff & the first soldier in his knit-bot army.
Bravo! I have been tempted to play with illusion knitting myself.
Love the rat....
Thanks, it's pretty cool seeing the picture develop as you go. I'm working on my first illusion pattern at the mo.
Illusion/Shadow Knitting is a great technique. You get this major thrill when you've knit enough that you can see the image you are creating. I took a workshop for Shadow Knitting last fall and we had a great time with it, although I still haven't made a project using the technique.
Nice work! I like the rat, too - is he a hairless breed?
forgive my ignorance, but what is illusion/shadow knitting? If it's fun I want to know about it!
It's a knit/purl technique ; which combined with two-colour striping gives you stripes in one direction and a picture in the other.
It's actually a simple technique - but can be a real bugger to keep track of the pattern
