Illusion knitting is a special a technique that provides you with a secret image when viewed at an angle. It may look complex but is about the simplest form of patterned colour-work going. At heart, its just alternating patches of garter and stockinet.

If you can purl, you can illusion knit.

DNA and illusion knitting could be made for one another. Looking across the scarf, the ladders of the striping pattern twist round those of the helix as purls and knits start to bunch together to display a regular shape (at least for those initiated on how to look).
