Product Description

This is the first and lowest-resolution of my “Parallax” series of double-knit accoutrements, which are based on the warped-checkerboard style used by some Op-Art artists in the 1960s. This type of motif has been used often in weaving but not very much, as far as I have found, in knitting — probably due to the long floats and/or complex twisting required by Fair Isle and Intarsia techniques. However, double-knitting does away with both of those limitations.

Because this pattern uses an all-over checkerboard chart, it’s hard to tell which side is the back and which is the front at a quick glance. The reason for double-knitting this piece is more so that both sides will be presentable rather than that either side shows a different “mood”.

The yarn used is a blend of yak down and bamboo. It has a lovely drape and soft hand, and will be a treasured piece of winter wear for you or someone special to you.
