Project Plans: Shadow Knitted Scarf

Shadow Knitting is a wonderful new technique that I will learn this month in a class taught at a LYS.

This form of knitting uses a simple technique of alternating rows of dark and light yarn to produce a subtle patterning that disappears depending on the angle from which it's viewed. Kind of like Magic!! My scarf will have alternating rows of black and green with a heart at each end alternating in purple and black.

If you are interested, Vivian Hoxbro has a lovely book on Shadow Knitting (you can find it on Amazon).

Check out my new Lantern Moon needles. I'm major hooked on LM needles and need little excuse to purchase a new set.
