Illusion knit

unikatissima Illusion Knit

I tried illusion knitting once (Illusion knit – Shadow Knit) – and it worked – mostly ;-)
I learned it from strumpfbina’s Totenkopf Illusion Pattern (German).
You can see the result on the photo.
As template I used an old filet crochet template showing an angel. After the first rows I realized that fine details don’t show, so I didn’t knit the wings ;-)
The rest looks like a Mensch √§rger’ Dich nicht pawn :)

That’s the item seen from above – rather…nice, I’d say ;-)

In the advent calendar of Wollke7 you can find behind door no. 3 the link to a PDF file with instructions for a potholder with a shadow Christmas tree (German).
