<p>what is the illousion </p>
really nice
Just came across this! You've given some pretty clear instruction which is fantastic! Anytime I show anyone my scarves they always ask how it works and I've taken to just smiling at them and saying &quot;Math!&quot; :)&nbsp;<br> I learned to do this stuff awhile back, but it's nice to see good clear instructions online after having to teach myself how to do it (and after trying to teach kids to do it)! Here are 2 of mine:<a href="http://misscreepers.deviantart.com/art/hendrix-190656073"><br> http://misscreepers.deviantart.com/art/hendrix-190656073</a><br> and<a href="http://misscreepers.deviantart.com/gallery/31512637#/d3afuog"><br> http://misscreepers.deviantart.com/gallery/31512637#/d3afuog</a> &nbsp;<br> <br> great instructable! &nbsp;:D<br> <span style="display: none;">&nbsp;</span><br> <br> <br>
Thanks for the Instructable! I've always wanted to know how to do this. :-)

I'm putting together some additional information on shadow knitting for wikipedia, and to enhance this instructable... do you have a copy of the magazine that demonstrates this? That would be a very cool addition.
My wife knots like a machine, and I should know, we have 2 knitting machines, I asked her about this raised patterns and she was familar with it, I was hoping to surprise her with it. What I am looking for is some kind of program that can take artwork and make a pattern in excel. Right now we have to do it by hand.
hi, my students change their artwork on excell sheets. we can work this out. send across your artworks to me at sonisonali@yahoo.com, and we will try to change it fopr you. sonali
I'm not aware of any such program, but it wouldn't be too hard to develop using PHP and imagemagick. Another idea, Thanks!
This looks great, and so easy. Thanks, I can' wait to try it.
Kitewife is 2/3 of the way through a scarf like this - it has a skull & cross-bones at each end.
Kitewife must be fairly skilled to do that.
She is, but won't admit it. It's not her pattern, though, she found it online (I'll find the url later).
And... <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Pirates-Secret-Scarf/">Here's the final result from Kitewife</a>. Very nicely done.<br/>
(And I've edited the text to include the link to the original pattern.)

Now there's a site from a cute lass, with some great knitting!
My favorite one that I've seen is the linux penguin on a scarf. <a rel="nofollow" href="http://dabne.net/carolina/geekknit/linuxscarf-en.htm">You can find it here.</a><br/>
Isn't it Kitewoman? ...unless you're Kitehusband! That sounds... like a honeymoon took a turn for the worse...
She prefers Kitewife - she says Kitewoman makes her sound like a medeival serf (like washer-woman, but not so damp).
Really? I think its more of a colonial washer-woman kind of thing...
Cool, I'd never seen this before. It'd be great for spies...
I have a pattern for this of a stripper on a pole.
This is not even cool, because this is just AWESOME! I love it, great photos, great instructions, I love illusions, nice work.
This is neat! I've seen pieces like these before- thanks for explaining how it works.
This is pretty cool. You should do a hidden word or code in these things. Great instructable!
