Field Guide No. 6: Transparency

Field Guide No. 6: Transparency

"See-through stitches."

When we think of transparency in knitting, lace instantly comes to mind. But in their sixth Field Guide, Kay and Ann of Mason-Dixon Knitting have collaborated with the ever-agile Amy Christoffers to explore the idea of transparency—taking us on a journey through cleverly structured fabrics and, as always, the brilliant use of a variety of color and fiber.

Four beautiful projects, each designed by Amy, play with transparency in knitting. First is the Cockleshell Cardigan, an unusually constructed baby sweater with a touch of pretty lace. In the Shakerag Top, subtle stripes are created by alternating a single strand and a double strand of a single color of yarn. The Peek-Through Cowl/Scarf layers lace in a way that both reveals and obscures the pattern (knit it to find out how!). And finally, the airy Albers Shawl makes ‘windows’ of color by simply adding another strand and knitting it with the background color!

Brimming with tips, hints, and amusing stories—including a note on “Visible Mending” by Kay Gardiner and “The Paradox of Lace” by Ann Shayne—this little Field Guide packs a big punch.
