These Clever Custom Sweaters Will Render You Virtually Invisible

Knitted Camouflage is what happens when an artist and avid knitter team up for a punchy photoshoot full of trompe l'oeils and visual sleight of hand.

The goal here is to hide the models by matching their custom sweaters perfectly with the background. To achieve the effect, artist Joseph Ford called on the help of knitter Nina Dodd to make a series of very specifically designed sweaters. He chose the locations and then she would begin knitting the perfect top.

When the lines of the sweater pattern align with the background, the model seems to disappear (well, their torsos do anyway). Know you see me, know you don't.

Ford achieves a neat disappearing effect with nothing more than a few balls of carefully chosen yarn and plenty of patience. We can't say this is the most convenient way to disappear, but it's definitely making us rethink the way we choose sweaters in the future. It's not always bad to blend in a little.
