Not your ordinary sock! Here’s an eye-popping collection of 19 patterns that raises the bar for sock knitting. Stephanie van der Linden is a master knitter and shows her technical skills to great effect in Op-Art Socks. A collector of op-art ceramics, she was inspired to translate graphic optical illusions into knitted patterns for knitted socks, replicating their eye-popping effects. Readers will explore knitting techniques such as graphic colorwork, textured knitting (knit and purl), shadow knitting, and shifting ribbing to create optical illusions. The book includes black-and-white swatches of all patterns so that readers can readily perceive the op-art illusions in each piece.
Opt-Art Socks is truly unique in theme and designs - knitters will go beyond ordinary sock knitting into new territory! Softcover, 160 pages; Interweave Press
