Op-Art Colorwork

Have you seen Vogue Knitting’s, Holiday 2013 issue yet? We have, and our hands down favorite is this cool colorwork pullover by Amy Micallef. We love the way she took traditional stranded knitting and gave it a modern spin. Of course we’re also excited by her choice of yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes. It’s a perfect match for this kind of detailed design. The round, dense yarn provides perfect stitch definition that makes the op-art pattern really pop.
