Mirage Scarf and Hat
Point of view is everything with this mysterious set. Viewed straight on, the pattern appears as vertical stripes of differing colors; viewed aslant, the stripes recede and diagonal lines appear. Intrigued by the “shadow knitting” technique, the designer developed this crochet illusions technique so crocheters could create the same stealth designs.
