Sweater Design by Way of Scandinavia with Vithard Villumsen
Learn how to design a your own Scandinavian sweater with an accomplished knitwear designer! We start out with an introduction to traditional Scandinavian knitwear patterns. Based upon this, you will design your own two-color stitch pattern. We will begin swatching your pattern in class. Homework between first and second class will be to finish your 5" x 5" swatch in your stitch pattern. On the second day, we will look at different sweater styles and using your own stitch pattern, we will design your own personalized Scandinavian inspired knitting pattern.
