What could be more magical than a wizard who disappears!

When you look at illusion knitting from directly in front you only see narrow stripes. The image appears when you look from an angle. The wizard has been designed to be viewed from the side so you can use it as a baby blanket or a wall-hanging.

Illusion knitting is very easy to do because you are only using one colour for each ridge of knitting. There is no stranding or changing colour part way across. If you can knit and purl you can do this.

You can use any yarn. I used Stylecraft Special DK in Emperor and Wisteria (about 500 metres (550 yards) of each, with extra for the border).

The main part is approximately 70 cm by 90 cm (28” by 36”). You could make a wide border all round to make it afghan size for an older child.

The pattern has various versions of the chart, including one intended for phone and tablet users
