Enjoy a fresh new approach to sock knitting! Stephanie van der Linden is a master knitter and shows her technical skills to great effect in Op-Art Socks . A collector of op-art ceramics, she was inspired to translate graphic optical illusions into knitted patterns for socks, replicating their eye-popping effects.

Op-Art Socks contains 19 projects. Explore graphic colorwork, textured knitting (knit and purl), shadow knitting, and shifting ribbing to create optical illusions. The book includes black and white swatches of all patterns so that you can readily perceive the op-art illusions in each piece.

Op-Art Socks is truly unique in theme and designs. Go beyond ordinary sock knitting into new territory!

For the advanced sock knitter, these are a selection of superb, mostly-colorwork patterns that are great fun to knit. Many of the sock patterns create cool visual effects. Clear charts and written instructions.
