By popular demand - and just in time for the new film - here is a sideways knitted shawl with an illusion of a more mature Harry Potter.

It incorporates the Deathly Hallows symbol at the points. You can see these yourself, as a matching pair, when you are wearing the shawl and look down.

This main illusion is designed to be viewed from the side so is ideal for wearing. When someone looks directly at your back they will see only vertical stripes. The picture will be revealed as you move around. It would also be suitable to use as a panel for an afghan or as a wall hanging.

The shawl in the photos was made using DK yarn. It used about 400 metres (440 yards) in each colour for the main part, with extra for the edging and fringe. It is approximately 140 cm (55 inches) across, excluding the fringe.

Any yarn could be used but a thicker, or thinner, yarn would change the overall size of the shawl.

The photos show a plain wide band at the top of the shawl. This ensures that the picture doesn’t get wrinkled at the top. You can omit it if you wish. One of the photos shows the shawl without the fringe. The pattern includes instructions for adding plain bands to match the top.

One of the photos shows what you see when you look directly at the illusion.
