Pattern description from Son of Stitch ‘n Bitch: “Even the mildest-mannered of men can be a bit of a cad at times, and this illusion scarf lets him hide his naughty side from the rest of the world. Looked at straight on, it’s a basic striped scarf in a fiery red colorway. But hidden like a shadow among the flames are the silhouettes of two naked ladies, dancing on a pole that stretches from one end of the scarf to the other. Of course, these figures are revealed only when you look across the surface of the scarf, so when your guy is wearing the scarf, he’ll see here every time he looks down. It’s his little secret. But no worries- this lusty lady will make him think of no one but you.”
