Ground Hog Day: Backwards with Candace Eisner Strick
Will he see his shadow? Definitely yes, but it might not be a shadow of a ground hog! By knowing where to use knits and purls, you can make a fabric that will magically show designs when viewed from a certain angle. Sometimes called shadow knitting, this technique is fun and mysterious, and can be applied to almost all shapes of knit garments. The added bonus is that it is easiest to do if you know how to knit backwards!
2 oz each of black and white smooth worsted weight yarn, US 8 (5mm) needles. (What you need is a good contrast; if you have navy yarn and ecru, do not go out and buy black and white).
Knitting Basics including sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles and crochet hooks of various sizes.
