Yarn Magic with Larry Wilson
But that's not all, folks: to get you in the mood for magic and help you dazzle spectators with your magic skills, Larry Wilson, world-renowned illusionist and featured guest at Spellbinders, is here with an exclusive tutorial to help you tackle the trickery of sleight-of-hand magic!
In this video, Larry teaches you to use yarn to impress and amaze even the most skeptical audience, and we've conjured up a special Magic Kit featuring Cascade 220 Fingering
to help you do it! Like the best masters of misdirection, we've included one bright and attention-grabbing color to draw the eye, plus a neutral shade to carry off the trick!
$5 from each kit purchased goes directly to ERNI to support community programs and events like Spellbinders, so this is one trick you can feel good about!

Once your dexterous deception is complete, make the yarn reappear and lend itself to another type of magic: knitting! Whip up Kristen's Optical Illusion Mitts to warm (or conceal!) your hands as you perform your hocus-pocus, or check out our Ravelry Magic Yarn Bundle
for even more ideas!
And then perform real magic: teach a young person how to knit (or crochet, or sew, or do any other craft - including the illusion tricks you learned from Larry!) - enriching young minds and inspiring young hearts is what makes our world a brighter (and more fun!) place to be!
