You can only see the illusion duck when you look at the blanket from an angle. When you look straight at the knitting you will see stripes and just the faintest shadow of a duck.
The blanket shown was knitted in DK yarn and measures approximately 80 cm x 100 cm (32” x 40”). You can easily adjust the size of the blanket by adding, or subtracting, rows and stitches around the duck. The size will be different if you choose a different thickness of yarn. The illusion will work whatever thickness of yarn you choose.
Amount of yarn (if using DK)
- Approximately 600 metres (660 yards) light
- Approximately 500 metres (550 yards) dark
Illusion knitting is extremely easy to do. It only requires basic knit and purl stitches.
