Knitted Skull Illusion Scarf

Skull Illusion Scarf At AngleAfter seeing this Skull Illusion Scarf on Boing Boing, I just had to try it. I had never seen this type of knitting (called "shadow" or "illusion" knitting) before, but it was neat.

The online pattern was pretty easy to follow, and I made a printer-friendly version [pdf, 1.4MB], too.

I also uploaded a video of the finished scarf doing its thing to YouTube - check it out here or below. Also, here are some more shadow knitting resources:
