Creative Knitwear Project

This term I learnt how to operate an industrial DUBIED knitting machine (much larger and more complex than the small domestic machines we used in the first term). We learnt several techniques on the machines in order to produce a portfolio of knitted samples which we then had to develop further with our own yarn and colour choices, to inspire a design for a new garment. Below are some of my best knitted samples which lead towards the design of my second final piece.

ASOS ClassiKnits Collection

Here is my final collection for ASOS ClassiKnits, my approach to slow fashion. A collection of timeless, classic knitwear made from locally and ethically sourced, environmentally friendly yarns and materials.
