30. Dezember 2004
Do you believe in magic? If you don't, shadow knitting will win you over.

The mysteries of this clever technique are explored and refined here by professional knitwear designer and author Vivian Hoxbro.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ein schönes Buch 16. März 2005
Format:Taschenbuch
Erstaunlich, was man mit einer einfachen Stricktechnik für tolle Effekte erzielen kann! Es wird immer nur rechts oder links gestrickt und immer nur jeweils mit einer Farbe. Durch die wechselnde Rippenstuktur entstehen Muster, die je nach Betrachtungswinkel stärker oder schwächer hervortreten - Schattenmuster halt. Die Schnitte sind einfach, um die Wirkung der Muster zur Geltung kommen zu lassen. Die Anleitungen sind ausführlich und gut verständlich, die Fotos sehr schön und animierend. Man möchte gleich loslegen mit dem "Schattenstricken"!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Einfache Techniken - große Wirkung 1. Februar 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Ein absolutes "must have" für jeden, der rechte und linke Maschen stricken kann. Die Muster sind auf viele Stücke anwendbar, sogar auf Socken, und lösen beim Betrachter immer wieder Erstaunen aus. Ein "muß" in jeder Sammlung von Strickbüchern.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Shadow knitting-- make magic with color in simple stitches 3. Januar 2005
Von Joanna Daneman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Vivian Hoxbro, a Danish knit designer, has uncovered a type of knitting using simple garter stitch that reveals eye-teasing pattern and color when you use several shades of yarns. Yet you only use one color at a time--no color changing per row.

As you knit the alternating rows of dark and light yarns, you produce a pattern that is almost an optical illusion--depending on the angle you look at the knit piece, it may appear strongly patterned--or absolutely single toned. The yarns used are shetland-weight in wonderful colors. You can find these yarns in the US, as Mrs. Hoxbro has contracted with an American manufacturer to make them for her. Sources of these yarns, and substitutes to be found in Europe are included in the back of the book.

The rules of Shadow Knitting are:

1. You always use at least 2 colors of yarn.

2. Only one color is used at a time

3. You alternate two rows of dark knitting with 2 rows of light knitting.

4. You use knit and purl stitches only

5. Wrong side rows use the same color as the previous row. The stitches are knitted or purled as per a chart.

There are a lot of good illustrations and of course projects including shawls, pullovers, Hoxbro's favorite dolman sleeve tops, jackets, vest, kids' wear, bags and decor items like pillows.

"Domino Knitting" was Hoxbro's previous book about a modular knitting technique. When "Dominos" was translated from Danish to English, the publisher put it into a small format. This time, "Shadow Knitting" is published in a bigger sized book--meaning the pictures and diagrams are large and easier to read. This is IMPORTANT--the diagrams of where to change from knit to purl are vital to the design and you want to see this clearly in the chart. But as before, you can enjoy Mrs. Hoxbro's fabulous sense of color. You should swatch some of the designs as they live and breath as no picture can portray in a book.

Still puzzled by "Shadow Knitting" after trying it out? Ms. Hoxbro does give workshops in the US from time to time--her website is viv.dk which will give you access to a newsletter of her schedule and bright examples of her knitting designs from the books.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not all it could be 23. Juni 2005
Von Diana - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you're looking to get into shadow/illusion knitting, this is, as far as I know, the most comprehensive book out there, and worth the price. Other books only offer very short "instruction" on it, which tends to eliminate necessary things like gauge, yarn content & needle selection.

This book is also chock full of beautiful colour photographs. And most (although, unfortunately not all) of them include shots from at least two angles, enabling the reader/knitter to see how the pattern should look from both angles, which can make the knitting of the item easier.

On the other hand, there is ZERO information on how to create your own patterns. Also, Høxbro has a tiring predilection for very geometric patterns, and this technique lends itself to so much more elaborate patterns than that. Annoyingly, everything seems to be in a "four row" pattern, and there are other options, which is given almost no mention.

While I'm glad I bought the book, and it's currently the most comprehensive widely available book, for the "expert" on the craft to issue such a woefully incomplete reference, especially after such a long delay, is terribly disappointing.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Back to the drawing board 20. Januar 2005
Von celiviel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The adult sweater patterns in this book are completely disappointing. I agree completely with the reviewer who referred to "Cosby sweaters". The styles are so 80s, I had to check the copyright date on the book to convince myself it had been published recently. All of the garments are in big, boxy styles with large geometric shapes. The narrow striping needed to create the illusion makes all of the patterns very busy. As an adult woman who prefers simple, classic, and slightly fitted designs, I would never wear any of the sweaters from this book. Or carry either of the bags, for that matter. However, there are two children's sweater patterns in the book that look cute.

I've never bought any other book by this author so I'm not sure if the disappointing designs are due to the limitations of the technique (e.g. does shadow knitting work best if you're knitting something rectangular?) or the knitwear designers.

The shawls/scarf and the pillows seem to come closest to finding a balance between showing off the technique and making something pretty. I wish there had been something more along the lines of the Alien Illusion Scarf in Stitch n' Bitch. Not all shadow knitting needs to be done with geometric shapes!

The section on how to produce the shadow knitting effect is pretty clear. I feel like I can go ahead and chart my own illusion design, even if there are no explicit instructions on how you might do that. I really don't know if buying the whole book was worth it in the end though.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ...well worth the wait 6. Januar 2005
Von fibergirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
As you may know, the expected publication date for Shadow Knitting was delayed but the result is definitely worth the wait. The physical size of the book is larger than that of Domino Knitting, by the same author, and the numerous color photographs do a very good job of capturing this intriguing now-you-see-it, now-you-don't technique. The designs are simple and timeless, making them suitable for both less experienced and seasoned knitters alike. Even if you decide you do not care for this particular type of color work, the designs alone, like Kimono and Wing Shawl to name only two, are worth the price of the book.There are patterns for the home, children, men and women. For newer knitters who are only familiar knit and purl stitches, the author has included a technique section including illustrations explaining the increases and decreases and other necessary information needed to complete the projects. If you have wanted to do color work but have been intimidated by fairisle and intarsia, Shadow Knitting is an excellent place to start.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing Book 10. Januar 2005
Von Hip Knitter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I ordered this book online b/c I have been wanting to try out shadow knitting and couldn't find it in any local bookstores. Once I got the book home I realized it just wasn't for me. There are lots of patterns for sweaters, vests etc., but nothing that I would ever make or wear. I was hoping for more info on the tech. and charting your own patterns. My brother commented that it was a big book full of "Cosby Sweaters." I'd advise looking though the book before purchasing.
