Wow, that's really amazing. I have no idea what illusion knitting is, though.  Huh

Thanks so much everyone!  serialdeviant, illusion knitting looks like plain stripes when viewed head-on, but forms a pattern when you look at it at an angle.  You do this by forming the pattern with purls, because they're bumpy and knit stiches lie flat.  You always knit on the RS, and work the pattern on the WS.  So, for example.  I would do a row of k in red, then a combo of purls and knits on the WS in red, then to a k row of black, then the opposite of the p/k pattern I did with the red row. 

I would not mind sharing the pattern.  Right now, it's kind of scrawled on 4 different sheets of graph paper, and probably not readable to others.  I will clean it up and work on getting it posted.  Thanks for the compliments!

Ah, I get it. It's like when I was a kid and wrote things using tall skinny letters that were much more readable when viewed a an angle - illusion knitting is just more... intelligent about it.

Cool!

That's so pretty! And I'm sure tons of people will want it. I know I do!  Grin

I just learned this concept of illusion knitting last week and the first pattern I wanted to make was going to be a pink/white scarf for breast cancer awareness... seeing your project, now I REALLY want to attempt it!

If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
Still make lemonade taste like a sunny day
