This month I decided to bring back one of my favorite features on the blog – Knitwear Inspiration. Technically I’ve never stopped hunting for new knitwear designers and ideas and realized that I have bookmarked so many of them that it is worth sharing it here monthly – maybe you will also pick up some techniques and shapes knitwear industry comes up with.

Today’s crafter is Scarlett Mae Adams, she is not an established “official” designer yet, but she is a fascinating knitwear student who is definitely will bring something innovative to the industry.

Knitwear students usually work with creating textiles first before turning them into the garments and they have an absolute freedom experimenting with stitches, shapes and forms. One of the latest Scarlett’s projects is called Forms of the Body where she is exploring different techniques to create volume and texture of the knit fabric.

I love her approach of using every tool in her box, literally and figuratively, by combining basic stitches with more advanced techniques and playing with tension and yarn weights.

The result is the unique textiles that later can be interpreted in the garments. It is once again fascinating to see how vast the knitting world is and how amazingly flexible the knit textiles are.

    These images are so inspiring! It really is incredible to see the different ways that knitwear can be modified to create interesting shapes. The first image you share – that combines the interesting colour combo along with the geometric shapes, is probably my favorite of them all. Such a great idea to start up your Knitwear Inspiration column! I also love looking at Olga Jazzy’s patterns for the same reason – there are so many interesting 3-D techniques out there! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    That’s some cool stuff right there. I love it. I wish my brain could think that stuff up all by itself but it can’t.
