3D Textiles: Wire Knitting Experiments

  • Some of my experiments with hand knitting wire into 3 dimensional forms and shapes. I particularly like the way that wire distorts knit stitches, creating organic shapes. It also helps traditional hand knitting techniques create dimensionality.
  • material sample knit with 28 gauge copper wire and cotton
  • material sample knit with wire and novelty yarn
  • wire, beads, and plastic (hand knit)
  • hand knit wire mesh with yarn woven through
  • hand knit wire mesh with wool woven through (front)
  • hand knit wire mesh with yarn woven through (back)
  • pear knit with 28 gauge copper wire
  • hand knit creature made from yarn and copper wire
