Illusion knitting
Ii love this site! My mother taught me to knit when I was 9, now I'm 52 and decided to try it again. I actually got interested last year when I wanted to make a scarf out of Fun Fur. The videos on this site are so great, when I get myself in a mess I can usually figure it out by watching instead of reading in a book. My mother has macular degeneration, so she gave me all her her knitting stuff. I saw illusion knitting on Knitty Gritty and want to give it a try, does anyone know where I could find a pattern with either hearts or stars with instructions that are EASY to follow?

:XX:

I saw that today, too. I don't know of any patterns offhand, but here's a few links that might help. One of them says it'll help you make your own.

http://www.jigsawknits.co.uk/illusioncreate.html
http://www.lilocstudio.com/snowflake_illusion/

Here's the link to the Knitty Gritty show with the project. There is a heart in that scarf so maybe you could work from that.

I made up a pattern for an illusion star scarf for my sister. Pictures: 1 and 2.

You can email me if you'd like the pattern. I currently have it in a word.doc format that I can email.

Marlad...the original poster isn't active and hasn't posted in over 2 yrs. If you need something that you can't find ask in the patterns forum.

Here's a site that may help. There are several patterns already charted and good directions for charting your own.
