Illusion Baby Blankets

Over the years Steve has designed several illusion knitting baby blankets. When you look straight at the knitting you only see narrow stripes, in two colours. The image appears when you look from an angle. Illusions are notoriously difficult to photograph. They are much more impressive in real life.

Most of the blankets are designed to be viewed from the bottom. A few are viewed from the side. You cannot simply knit the design in the opposite direction. It has to be designed with the finished view in mind.

The blankets measure approximately 80 cm x 100 cm (32” x 40”), when made with DK yarn and use less than 600 grams in each of the two colours.
