KnitDesign: Color Study

  • Subtle shifts and sharp contrasts surround us, especially in nature. Dissecting images for their color variations allows for the construction of a variety of knits. This project's inspiration was a photograph I took while out for a walk in the Wissahickon. The use of single jersey, single cross tuck and double cross tuck structures conveyed both the softness and hard edges represented in the scene.¬†
