It's so easy Sig. All the stitches are knit and purl and you'd need to sit with the pattern in front of you for every other row. What I did was saved the pattern onto a Word document and knitted infront of the computer highlighting each row as I went along.

Yes, my printer doesn't work. I'd have much rather been able to sit on the couch with a copy infront of me and tick each row at a time, than enjoy the radiation off of my PC screen.

My daughters have each done an illusion knitting project. The eldest did the lynux penguin on a blanket and her sister (who taught the eldest) did a school scarf for her cousin, with school letters and paw prints.

Me... I have yet to try it!

Thanks everyone.

I've actually started using this cloth and the yarn is fab! Much better than S'n C: it's soft, shinny and doesn't colour fast at ALL!

Since I use it to wipe the units down rather than on the dishes I might make another one using even thinner yarn (I have some spare) and send it as a gift to my sister or my mum.

Even MEN seem to like it!

That is so cool! Now you should make it into a scarf! :happydance:

Dude that's AWESOME!!! :notworthy:
