Photos and words of knitted or other hand-crafted garments just don’t seem to convey the texture, heft and/or drape of the fabric.
Critical Factor in Garment Design
When I’m design a sweater or a scarf or any other garment, the drape of the resulting fabric is an important factor to how the garment turns out. A stiff shawl or a clingy, drapey sweater might be considered a disaster…especially if it was unintended.
When I publish a pattern, like the Cross Stitch Scarf, I try in as many ways as possible to make sure knitters who purchase the pattern can imagine correctly what the fabric will be like. But photos and words seem inadequate to convey the resulting fabric.
So, I thought I’d put together a brief video to see if that was any better at communicating fabric structure.
As noted in the video, I’ve started a new wide scarf project.
