A knitter contacted me last week and asked if I could help her with a scarf she wanted to make for her husband, an avid fan of the Liverpool Football Club. She told me that she liked the Illusion/Shadow style of knitting she had seen on some of my Super Bowl 2012 Super Scarves, but didn’t know how to come up with the design. I agreed to help.
She sent me a link to the Liverpool Football Club’s website and we discussed the lettering and the colors. Easy enough. Additionally, I noticed a red and white checked pattern on the website, so I incorporated the checks into the Illusion work. Check the link for the website. You can see the lettering as well as the red and white checked pattern there.
Here’s what I came up with in the end.
Every good visible Illusion image photo has a good invisible Illusion image photo to accompany it. Changing the viewing angle of the knitted piece makes the image appear or disappear.
If you live across the pond from me (or across the street) and are a fan of the Liverpool Football Club or know someone who is and would like to make the Liverpool Football Club Illusion Knit Scarf , click the link for the free pdf pattern.
