KNIT INSPIRATIONS

Design inspirations for knits can be found everywhere. A beautiful flower, architecture, motifs on woven fabrics, carpet designs and more. The possibilities are endless at this stage of the design process. Find you theme, then the fun begins.

The yarn selections today are numerous from cottons, to silks, to bamboo.The color choices of yarns are more than adequate to accommodate your design ideas. If you have already purchased your yarn for your project, wrap lengths of the  yarns around cardboard and take them along  with you on your inspiration journey. You will not need to duplicate the colors exactly, and you will find a lot of colors that will compliment your yarn colors.  Deciding on your color story is as close as your nearest Botanical Gardens where you can take lots of pictures , and a visit to the paint store for color chips that may also compliment the colors of yarn in your yarn choice. Don’t forget  the fabric store. Many  woven fabrics and trims posses just the right color combination’s within the fabric. Cut a small square of your fabric, to place alongside of your photos, yarns, color chips, trims to get the full effect of the color, pattern and texture you may decide to use.


Perhaps you will use a stripe combination or a fair-isle (jacquard) design, lace, or a knit and purl textural stitch combination, if you have not already thought about where you will place all of your wonderful  collected inspiration elements or how you will lay it out in  your project. Now is the time to decide what will best suit your colors, etc.  A sweater, shawl, scarf, or perhaps a beautiful throw for your bed or sofa. The decision on project type should be compatible with the type of stitch pattern, color pattern, lace pattern  that you choose to enable you to produce a desirable overall knit fabric.

Development is a necessary part of designing and every novice or seasoned knitter should spend time making several or many swatches to see how the colors, patterns and stitches will look  together before beginning the project. With color, yarn, style, and stitch decisions made.

LET THE KNITTING BEGIN !
