Shadow/Illusion Knitting
I have been working on shadow knitting, where you knit with 2 different colors and create what looks like stripes, but reveals a hidden pattern when you look at the fabric a certain way. I've got the technique down, and now I'm looking for directions on how to design my own shadow patterns. I can tell there's a method to the patterns I've tried, but my design attempts have come out very very wrong.

yes I might have to try that... i noticed that lots of people have looked at this post, but only one replied! I may just have to do the try-it-then-frog-it method.

Here's instructions on designing your own illusion/shadow garment. And here's a collection of pattern links using this method.

Have fun! I hope we get to see what you design!

Oh I get it now. I was thinking that you wanted to knit a stereogram. I can't do them, but here's an example:



Man, I didn't even have a stressful day :!:
