Knit scarf








This is the knit scarf I made for my daughter's choir teacher. It is done using the shadow knitting technique. Looking at it straight on it looks like black and white stripes. When you look at it from an angle, you can see the music notes. I used lots of graph paper and excel to do the charts. The teacher really liked it and I am kind of proud of this one. I haven't done anything else with shadow knitting, but there are all kinds of ideas floating around in my head. It was not that hard to do, just knit and purl.

Very nice scarf. I love it! You put a lot of work into designing that. And the detail of the afghan does show up if I click to enlarge. Also beautiful!

Wow - I would love the pattern. I am a musician/choral person and that is just too neat. I sing in the choir Voces Angelorum in Tallahassee. What a great scarf!

Fantastic job. A friend of mine made a dishcloth using the shadow method and when you looked at it just right it was the face from the Shroud of Turin.

PS: I spend every Christmas in Aztec. ;)

Great scarf! (And good for you, graphing your own, rather than just copying what's in the book! :) )

Thanks for posting the link at Crochetville. ;)
