SAMPLER

This may not be the most attractive piece of knitting and you probably won’t want to use it as part of a garment but it does show various shadow`effects that can be created. It does not show all possible permutations.

The sampler is shown from the bottom and side because the stripes are knitted in different directions. They look different depending on which side you view from.


In addition to the stripes shown you could also have a solid grey area and a two-colour section where grey is the perceived colour.
