Description

The mysteries of shadow knitting--a simple technique of alternating rows of dark and light yarn to produce a subtle patterning that appears and disappears depending on the angle from which it is viewed--are explored and refined here by a professional knitwear designer. The basic principles and techniques of shadow knitting are introduced through clear, well-illustrated instructions and are followed by spectacular projects that include winged shawls, squared bags, a matching cap and scarf, vests, sweaters, and Japanese-style kimonos. Each project is accompanied by step-by-step instructions and beautiful photographs.
