I spent the last two weeks working on this sweater. I’m an artist first and a knitter second so I’ve been working for a long time to figure out how to make my art in this medium. Finally, I came up with my “Nature Looking Back” series of drawings and created this sweater based off of my favorite drawing from the series.
I’ve already started another sweater with a different drawing from the series and am so excited!
What do you think about this concept of “wearable art”?
It’s absolutely beautiful!
a very long time ago, I had a knitting chart book for inserting art into your knitting, it was 50 classical art charts like the Mona Lisa and David. I have no idea what happened to that book.
Love it! And love to see more knitting here!
Ooohh I’d love to see that book!
I’m terrible at knit colorwork, but love to see it
The last time I remember using it, I made a blanket with a Mucha print on it (love love love Mucha) but that was nearly 20 years ago… the book was from the very early '80’s… back when we knew how to do sweater culture
You Are Extremely Talented…How Wonderful! Keep Going!
How lovely! I can’t wait to see how your next project comes along
Color me intrigued…
Could this be it, perhaps?
And @okaymoose: Your sweater is amazing! Fabulous work.
I had that one too! But that is not the one with Mucha in it, I don’t think… that book has actual sweaters in it, the one I had just had charts to add to any sweater/blanket…I gues you could have used it for other things but it had the ratios for knit stitches in mind when wrtten
probably my favorite single artist
Thank you I’ve been slowly working on another one since but it’s much thinner yarn so it’s taking forever!
That is beautiful. You are talented.
