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.

I was interested in the concept of shadow knitting, but this book was a disappointment. It is page after page of unappealing sweaters and the patterns are repetitive variations of blocks and triangles. Use Google to find better patterns for shadow knitting.

Understated design that becomes obvious with movement or the way light is shining on it. Easy knitting, even a beginner could master it.
