My "Candy Corn Illusion" dishcloth is finished!

My "Candy Corn Illusion" cloth (Dishcloth Fun KAL) is finished. Getting good pictures is rather difficult. I had fun knitting this illusion cloth. When you look at it head on it looks pretty much like a striped cloth....
....but, at an angle it's a different story......
Can you see the image of the candy corn? I have to admit I enjoyed knitting it, but I can't truthfully say it's one of my favorite dishcloths. I think in the future I'll probably stick with the ball bands, which are my all time favorite! I must say though it is fun to try something different.

(edited by hakucho on 1/7/2007) Judith deleted the Dishcloth Fun KAL blog, and started a new KAL: FunknittingdishclothsKAL. She also has a separate blog for all the patterns we have done so far. You can find links to all the patterns there. The pattern for the candy corn illusion cloth can be found here: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/candycorn_illusion.html

Happy Knitting :)


  1. you're a genius, hakucho! I knew it was going to be a candy corn but I couldn't really see it. With your awesome photography, I could actually see it rather than just assume it was a piece of candy corn. :)

  2. LOVE the illusion knitting! Isn't it wonderful to have a 'secret' in you knitting? Great job!

  3. silly question. How did you get your edges to be so neat?? Did you slip the first stitch of every row?

  4. Deborah,
    I know about and should do the slip stitch thing when I knit, but it has never quite happened. I always just give the yarn an extra little tug when I begin my first row of every thing I knit. Seems to work for the most part :)

  5. I would like the instructions on how to make this? Just for myself. Pauline

  6. Pauline,
    I don't know how to get in touch with you, so I'll put the link to the pattern here:
    Just copy & Paste into your browser!

    happy knitting :)
