A Valentine’s Day love letter from a moebius to double knitting, Love Moebius marries these two fun techniques. Take a walk on the wild side as you watch the moebius magically twist and turn your stitches. Highly contrasting colours will make your heart throb for these X’s and O’s.
Welcome to a new year and new decade, knitters! 2020’s theme is…
I begin each garment design with a philosophy for that particular design. The philosophy is what the garment wants to be and what, if anything, are “nonnegotiable” elements and what can be tweaked if needed. For instance, proportional design is an overarching philosophy I’ve always applied in my garment designs, even before hearing Jill mention it in her class. As seen in Woodsong Camber (pre-class), the philosophy of this design is that it featured differing sized traveling cables dependent upon the size being knit. Or in Moonlit Kiss, I originally had sketched in highly detailed sleeves, but in development found the lace and cowl details were enough elements for one design so streamlined those sleeves down to a simple faux seam to match the body.
Remember how I said last blog that part of creating my custom sizing chart for Knit Eco Chic looked at ready-to-wear sites? Since “eco” is the foundation that ties my designs to the fashion world, I paid particular attention to what eco “ready-to-wear” charts looked like.
