This scarf took what seemed like forever. It is my first Illusion knit. This is where you use multiple colored yarns and different texture stitches to create an image that when viewed straight on appears to be stripes but when viewed at an angle shows the image. The scarf is done is 2 colors of 100% cashmere and is 6 feet long. The pics here are mostly while it drying from being blocked. The skull Illusion scarf pattern is fairly simple if you can do chart reading. The stitches are only knit and purl.
