Technical Tuesday: Illusion Knitting

This technique I have seen before, but completely forgot about! I’ve wanted to try this out, but I figure I will cover it here because it is just so darn cool! Illusion knitting is a knitted garment that uses texture to create a hidden image or words.

You can only see the images or words when you tilt the garment on an angle. There is a group on Ravelry for Wooly Thoughts; it looks like they supply a fair amount of the illusion knitting patterns on Ravelry.

I can’t even imagine how intense writing these patterns! Sara, the one below is for you!
