As you know, I freelance as a knitwear designer. I’ve been busy with boy sweaters of late but I’ve still found time for sample knitting which is just as well since I’ve been selling very regularly and the studio I freelance for has been asking for more.

I normally have ideas posted on my studio wall so I’m never short of something to work on but obviously this needs topping up periodically. I’m sure you’re well aware that I can’t share the actual finished sample with you because of IP issues, however, I can share the source inspiration.

So we have –

WP_20150722_17_01_59_Pro   WP_20150723_19_57_47_Pro

I’m very excited by these. Especially the circular pattern which has given me 5 potential samples. Some of these involve modular knitting and others require from some interesting construction which you know makes me very happy. The second image is also exciting and makes my brain fizz with possibilities. The strange thing is neither immediately yelled “CABLES!!!” at me.

What do these yell to you?

As I work on the samples, I’ll share what I can with you.

    Do you ever knit through the back of the stitch for texture? I can see those circles as a raised design rather than cables. :)

      Yes Carole I do, it’s a really subtle difference which I find pleasing. I also play with knit/purl positioning and wrong side/right side knitting. It’s hours of exploring.
