Design Your Own Textural Knitting Pattern with Vithard Villumsen
Add an extra dimension to your knitting. Move away from the graphic patterns towards the knit patterns. Based on traditional 2-dimensional color patterns you will learn techniques to designing your own 3-dimensional knitting patterns. We will be looking at the difference between the 2 and the 3-dimensional patterns and talk about how the extra dimension adds to your knitting. Students will be swatching their designs.
