Vanishing Point is a shawl that is easy and fun to knit and a joy to wear.
A vanishing point is a point in a perspective drawing onto which parallel lines appear to converge.
In this shawl lines of diamond shapes converge toward the point getting smaller and smaller, giving a “perspective” effect to the entire piece.
Vanishing Point is worked in diamond modules, joined seamlessly while you knit. The entire colorwork is knitted using only a color at a time, avoiding stranding and floats on the wrong side.
The dramatic and decorative zig-zag border at one edge of the shawl is the direct consequence of this construction.
Modules are worked all in the same way, with the difference of having a bigger or smaller MC diamond inside, which create the perspective effect.
Once you get the hang of how a module is made, this is a perfect TV knitting project, with just a little twist given by the unusual construction and the different size of the CC diamonds to keep you interested
