It’s been a busy week, but I’ve not got an awful lot of knitting done. I’ve spent it fine-tuning my pattern writing algorithms and sizing system. This is really valuable for me, but it doesn’t really translate well as a blog. Fuck it, I like equations. If you’d be interested in learning my tech-y approach to pattern writing, I will be holding workshops later in the year.
What does translate well to blogging is the photoshoot I did with a friend this week. It’s for my new pattern, “We All Play Synth”, which should be available some time tomorrow evening. “We All Play Synth” is a DK weight jumper for men. It features a tapered waist, narrow “tailored” sleeves and a few suggestions for customisation.
When designing, I wanted to make a simple, no frills jumper pattern with excellent fit and a modern sillhouette. The name references both the synthetic nature of the materials (Acrylic all the way, baby.) and the region of East London me and my hipster friends live in.
If you like the pattern, you’re in luck. The first 50 downloads made tomorrow (ie Tuesday 3rd September, 2013) will be absolutely free with the product code “SAUSAGEPARTY”.
