a conversation between two friends separated by one state, sharing the same passion for the art of knitwear.

knitorious is an archive for knitwear designers, knitwear students, knitwear lovers and even the knitwear curious.



Past few weeks I've been mind-travelin' back and forth between great
concentration and zero focus/playing with the turtle all day. This sketch is
one of the best I've done lately, and is part of a project I've put together for
a high-fashion job interview. I drew my inspiration from the archives of this
blog, with mostly Moroccan and Russian influences.

The collection in it's entirety features contrast in pattern, as you see.
I've contrasted hand-knit fair isle float jacquard patterns with smaller scale
machine-knit striped jacquard prints (in the skirt). Also, some solid, bright
pops of color shown in quilt-inspired stitches and rows of four stitch cables.
Lastly, I hand-made various felt plaid fabrics, which I usually show as a pencil
skirt or pant, worn with plaid knit cardigans draped over the babe's shoulders.
All tied together (quite literally) with folk-embroidered corset type
belts made from leather.

I'll post more up in a bit!
