The technique of shadow knitting uses your basic knit and purl stitches strategically placed to create a shape that can only be seen from an angle - and not when looked at straight on. Each kit includes detailed knitting instructions, along with charts. This yarn is made of 4 individual plies held together, and wound by hand in Germany.
From this kit it is possible to knit one of the two variants: motif (the world) in color gradient or background in color gradient.
The yarn used in this kit is made from recycled fibers. Old clothes / materials and mainly overhangs from textile production and yarn production are sorted by color and processed into regenerated cotton yarn. A process is used that does not require dyeing again, thus water consumption and environmental pollution are greatly reduced.
The result is a soft, supple yarn with a linen look - excellent to work with. It does soften with washing as well.
Not included in the kit: US 6 needle (anything longer than a 32"), tapestry needle, stitch markers if desired
Finished Size: approximately 72"wide x 27.5" high at the point (194 cm x 74 cm)
Please Note: This pattern is only available with the purchase of this kit.
