Knitting in patterns...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, October 1, 2010
After a productive few days, organising samples etc for the presentation/review day, all went smoothly and i'm now on full time knitting duty of my first proper garment - the sides and one front panel are done and its just the back now to do...i'm not 100% happy with it at the moment as a little bit of the structure of the piece is different to how I imagined it - but maybe it will sort out when I attach the back piece - or maybe i'll have to think of something else!

HOWEVER - one major achievement is that the dip dyed yarn I dyed with onion skin has made the most beautiful patterns - i'm really happy with them and hopefully I can use them in other elements of my designed garments - well I have to get back to knitting at my challenge for the day is to finish the back piece!!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
