ILLUSION ART

These YouTube videos will give you more idea of what happens when you view the knitting from different angles. (Some are a little wobbly due to the problems with getting the right angles.)






The illusions you see in the pictures above are far more complex than most illusion knitting. We do not know of anyone else working with illusions in this artistic way. Steve’s ability to draw and paint give him the advantage of being able to create such detailed pieces.


The original drawing and charting are complicated. The knitting is no more difficult than for simple illusion knits. It merely needs careful counting on most wrong side rows. Anyone who can do knit and purl stitches could make any of these pictures.

When you look straight on to a piece of illusion knitting you see only two-colour stripes. The picture is revealed when you look from an oblique angle. Photographs do not do justice to the amazing effects. It is very difficult to photograph them from the correct angle.


The illusions above are designed to be seen from the side. Those below (except Hagrid and the mature Harry Potter) are designed to be viewed from the bottom.
