Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 6: Transparency.

The sixth installment of the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide series is here! Let’s take a peek inside.

Ann Shayne and Kaye Gardiner’s series of Field Guides are pocket-sized booklets focused on a particular theme or knitting technique. The theme here is transparency, a quality that admittedly, may not be among the first we think of when we think about knitting.

But transparency plays a role in lace knitting, and also in loose gauges, and on a metaphorical level, in visible mending.

As in every Field Guide, Ann and Kaye’s ruminations on the topic at hand are featured, but they’ve also brought designer Amy Christoffers in for a few patterns. This Anni Albers inspired wrap uses yarn-mixing to suggest transparency, and what better yarn for yarn-mixing than Shibui? Pebble and Reed are shown here in a beachy colorway of grays, beige, and blue.
