Illusion is a medium size crescent-shaped shawl knitted in a sport weight yarn.
It is worked bottom-up in two different colours and uses slip stitch technique. The colour changes frequently to keep the interest going.
To achieve the shape side decreases and short row shaping have been applied. There is a little bit of crocheting involved for finishing off, but it is very simple.

There are two versions shown: one in Rose/Cloak, and the other in Fathom/Glazed Pecan colours. The shawl uses only 2 skeins, one of each colour with little left.

Illusion is an easy and fun shawl to knit. It is big enough to cover the shoulders yet long and soft enough to be wrapped around the neck like a scarf during colder months.

Illusion is a stylish and a must-have accessory for a modern girl!
