    Illusion knitting

    August 3rd, 2015

    Illusion knitting is also known as shadow knitting, as it creates the illusion of a changing pattern on a garment. This effect is created by the knitter, using two or more colors when knitting and alternating these after each row. Because of the different height of the rows only one color is visible when looking at the fabric straight on. When seen from a different angle the hidden colors become visible and create a new visual pattern.

    The interlock is a style of knitting used on ribbed fabrics similar to jersey knit, though both sides of an interlock fabric are identical. Interlock provides for a soft and smooth surface. As the interlock is the tightest of knitting styles it is also the firmest, most absorbent and most durable and is therefore popular in the fashion industry.
