Illusion knitting is one of the most interesting kind of knitting to me. When you look at the piece straight on, you just see a two color stripped knit. Then you see the piece from an angle, a message or pattern emerges. I make illusion scarves, custom and pre-made.
I first tried it for my friend that loves zombies. I made her a scarf that said, "the dead will walk." I got so excited I had to make more. The patterns can take hours to develop, but it is completely worth the effort.
This scarf says "how do I love thee." Now I made and sell custom scarves. Email me or convo me on Etsy about what saying you would like and I will let you know if it will work. Most colors can be done.
Also available are words done in morse code...
I started making bears when I wanted to make my niece a gift that she would like as a little girl, but also appreciate as she grew older. I had a wonderful sweater that was ruined by a mystery sticky substance. The other 99% of the sweater was perfect, and looked like a polar bear; so I made a bear out of it.
Now I make custom bears for others. Do you have a sweater that you wore on a first date that doesn't fit now, or a suit from your granda that you don't want sit in your closet? I can make them into a custom bear for you.
Each bear comes out completely unique. Just like the story behind your piece of material.

Artist bears get a bad rap for being stuffy little bears that sit on shelves of older ladies houses.
These artist bears don't understand this stereotype.
All my bears are made out of repurposed materials. Materials that formally lived as suits or sweaters.
All bears are giving a fitting hand knitted scarf or real repurposed necktie that fits the animal's personality. Sometimes, I can even make a custom human scarf to match the bear's! Just ask. Looking for just a scarf for your own animal? I have those for sale separately too.
These and other bears (and one bunny!) are sold at http://www. Lyonesque.etsy.com
