Illusion is addicting, to me anyway.. I love it! charts, I don't love, yet anyway.. something I need to learn. Here's my first finished illusion project, a simple dishcloth. I'm working on my second one, same pattern but using black and red yarn.

Thanks Auburn chick. I used sugar and cream. I think the red/black one it going to look really sharp.
I'd like to find other illusion patterns that don't use a chart. My printer is broke so I can only hand write a pattern right now.

How about this (http://laurasknits.googlepages.com/heartillusionscarfpattern) pattern?

Here's (http://www.freshislefibers.com/Patterns/shadowknittinglinks.htm) a page that has tons of patterns. Some have charts, but you may be able to go through and find some that don't.

Cool. The heart really stands out on the white background when you look at it from the side. Nice work.

Thanks Auburnchick.. those are great. Somewhere I saw an illusion flower scarf but not sure where I found it, lol.. The stitch and bitch nation book for men, has a really niffty pole dancer illusion scarf, it's kinda retro looking. Go-go girl like.

Thanks knit2tied.. if you have to wash dishes by hand, might as well use something appealing for a lesser appealing job, lol
I've had friends tell me the dishcloths I make them are to nice to actually use. I've said to them.. what in the "blank" did you think I made them for?? they start to laugh then and promise they will actually get them wet.

I like both of your dishcloths, they really look like a lot of fun to knit.

Nathalie, thanks for the page of Illusion patterns. I found an Alien scarf that would be great to knit up for my son. Don't have the S&B book anymore, and somehow I missed that one.

that's really cool!

How does it work, seen these before but can't see how it's done?

Oh and I've had people say the same thing when I made them dishcloths too.... And I just was clueless what to say... I'll remind them why I made it next time.
