Stephanie van der Linden is a master knitter, and shows her technical skills to great effect in Op-Art Socks. Also a collector of op-art ceramics, she was inspired to translate graphic optical illusions into knitted patterns for socks, replicating their eye-popping effects.
Readers will explore 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 you can readily perceive the Op Art illusions in each piece.
