All I want for Christmas is a Shroud of Turin (illusion) knitting pattern...


Does anyone have a copy of a Shroud of Turin illusion knitting pattern? My sonís 21st birthday is next month and he would really like a scarf made from this pattern.

The creator of this pattern, Annie, at one time posted this pattern on the web. I e-mailed her, and she was kind enough to reply but said that she thought it was lost her last computer crash.

If anyone has a copy of this pattern, please contact me at food.for.thought@sbcglobal.net.

Best wishes to all,

Carolyn

Dear Kelly,
I can't thank you enough!!! I was able to navigate to the page you posted above and print a copy. Believe me, I searched Google too, but I never found an archived copy on it. If there are any tricks to it, let me know.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

Carolyn

I had to change the address to get there by cutting out the http:// in the middle like this:

Give Coleridge credit for saying that people most often err in what they condemn and are nearest the truth in what they allow.

Can anyone tell me how many rows there are supposed to be? I printed it out but the last row I got appears to be cut off.

There are 144 rows in this pattern. When I tried to print from the website, I only got 79 rows to show up. Pasting the image into Word didn't work either.

Try this if you aren't getting all the rows:
Open Paint (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Paint).
Go to the image, right click on it and click on "Copy".
Paste the image into Paint.
Now you can get the image printed (albeit, divided between 2 pages).

Paint does a pretty good job of dividing the rows between the two pages when printing, but there is one row that is a little hard to see. Perhaps there is a better way, but I haven't found it... yet...

I have never worked a pattern with two colors where most of the row is one color and a couple of stitches are the contrasting color. From a book, I figured out how to carry the contrasting color along the wrong side with "weaving" (which I think is a Fair Isle technique), but it doesn't seem to work when I want to carry the CC along the WS when the knit side is facing the WS. Twisting the strands every couple of stitches seems to work, but is tedious.

Any suggestions
