    Shadow knitting is colourful and fun. From above you see stripes but viewed from an angle a cool cat appears.

    I have made a dishcloth. You could make several and sew them together as a blanket or cushion cover.

    Finished size: Approximately 23 x 23 cm / 9 x 9 inches.

    Gauge: 21 sts and 36 rows to 10 cm (4 inches), measured in background pattern stitch after blocking. Gauge is not crucial for this project.

    This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
