View Full Version : My first illusion knit!

07-17-2007, 06:55 PM
Hi there,
Got bored last night untangling yarn (don't ask, failed experiment ;-)), and decided a friend of mine needed a pick-me-up, so knitted up the fleur-de-lys illusion pattern. She's a huge fan of Milady De Winter, and so loves the symbol. I only had shades of pink in the same yarn in my stash, but she likes pink, so it's ok - red and gold would have been better but unfortunately my LYS isn't open at 10pm *cry*

Here's the finished pics (didn't block yet)


Now back to the untangling....

It was really fun to knit and I could do it while watching tv, as long as I made sure I was counting right - so much easier than it looks and it comes out so impressive *grin*

That came out great! :cheering:

This is the next "technique" I want to try - just have to find the pattern that calls to me-thanks for the inspiration!

That is so cool! It makes me even more excited to start my Shoud of Turin illusion. I ordered the yarn Monday, so it should be here any time. I hope it turns out as well as your fleur de lis.

Very cool. I keep meaning to try illusion knitting but I've always got something else going.

That is really neat and you did it so quick! The first time I saw one, it was on the tv show Knitty Gritty (I like your's better!)

Yep, that's the one :-) Very good pattern - I used the written instructions cause I've always been better at that.
