Anonima can be worn doubled or loose, is knit in the round from a provisional cast on, then joined into a tube for easy wearing with no wrong sides. This optical pattern uses 2 complimentary singles of fingering weight semi-solids. (Stash-busting!) The impossible looking pattern is very simple... Only one color is worked at a time- the pattern is just slipped stitches, and combinations of knit & purl. The pattern has a link to a great tutorial on the easiest provisional cast on ever. The semi-solid colors of the 2 yarns work beautifully together, but the pattern is just as striking in 2 solid color, complimentary yarns.
