Now You See It

Shadow Pot Holder 2

The potholder here was made with a technique called shadow knitting. Careful placement of knit and purl rows reveals hidden stripes when the object is viewed at just the right angle. It's an easy knit and I like the contrast of black and white. Next time I'll try a hidden pattern.
