A double-knit scarf in an op-art motif
This is the first 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.
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.
This pattern was released in 2012 as a teaser for the eBook I had promised to release of the other Parallax patterns. The eBook is now available with all 5 Parallax patterns, but you're welcome to buy this one alone if it's the only one you want.
