In this episode of our web video series we demonstrate Illusion Knitting.  Illusion Knitting also know as shadow knitting is a color knitting technique that uses textured stitches to create the illusion of a hidden image that can only be seen at a an angle.

When your cloth is around 8 inches finish off by ending with 2 rows of the lighter color. Then bind off with the darker color.
