Project Description

Wool Sweaters

This design was originally inspired by a Spoonflower design challenge theme of “Fair Isle”. My favorite fair isle designs are the wool sweaters my Grandma Helen always wears with a yoke of colorful stitches around the shoulders. So my design is a scallop shell pattern of those sweater yoke shapes. I drew the knit stitches as a vector illustration, but I didn’t want the colors to be perfect and look computer generated, so I painted in the colors randomly and imperfectly with a Photoshop brush, so they are more of an abstract version of the fair isle style.
