Duck Illusion Baby Blanket
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 81 cm x 96 cm (32” x 38”). 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. I used Stylecraft Special DK in Cream and Saffron.
Illusion knitting is extremely easy to do. It only requires basic knit and purl stitches. The pattern includes several versions of the chart including one suitable for using on phones and tablets.
