Illusion knitting is like magic. In one way, it is stripes but look at it from an angle and you see a design!!! In this pattern, you see the bones of the hand and arm, such as with an x-ray.
This is a scaled down version of an existing pattern. I liked it and wanted to make for the grandkids. It was way too big and bulky. I reduced the number of stitches and added some shaping around the wrist.
This is a quick little knit and you can pretty much use left over lengths of yarn.
10 sts and 11 rows in stst = 2 inches

My passion is knitting and I have taken up designing in the past year or so. I learned to knit as a teenager and to sew when I was younger. I do some tatting but just don't seem to have the time anymore for much of it.
