For this Field Guide, we invited Amy Christoffers, one of the most agile designers we know, to explore the idea of transparency. We encouraged her to go beyond the obvious transparency of lace knitting. The four projects in this little book are Amy’s graceful response to our invitation.
The result? Wearable, gift-able, portable projects that you can carry around with you and knit, knit, knit.Albers Shawl
Peek Through Cowl/Scarf
We have long been fascinated with layered lace. Apart from the sheerness, the weightless texture is beguiling. We show two cowls here. To make a scarf, you simply follow the pattern as written, but skip the finishing step when the two ends are seamed together. The single-color sections are worked in double knitting. Each color in these sections is worked separately, resulting in a double layer of fabric.
It’s a striped fabric made from exactly one yarn. The subtlety and cleverness of this is something we really love. Using two strands of Jade Sapphire Sylph, we make the stripes first with one strand, then two strands carried together.
The shape is as elemental as imaginable—it is worked from the bottom up, in the round, until dividing to work the top part back and forth. There is plenty of ease in this pullover, and drape.
