I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because we create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique.
Jill Wolcott Knits® patterns are very complete--I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project and leave little room for interpretation. When a pattern challenges you to conquer a new technique, the directions and support are there to give you a great result (I've given it lots of thought and coached many knitters to new skill heights). Your reward will be the skill that you take forward in your knitting. My love is knitting, not sewing, so I design so that as much as possible is done on the knitting needles with sewing only as absolutely necessary. This isn't necessarily a shortcut, but I think it works really well for those who don't love the finishing process.
I have an extensive online techniques library to help you master techniques I use, and anything specific to a pattern is included.
Keep the special little girl in your life wrapped in love with this delightful duo. The Honeyberry Scarf is a swatch for all of the Chunky Berry Girly designs, so it has rib, the sweet picot hem and also features a darling pocket where she can keep her treasures. To fulfill her dreams try the Cloudberry Capelet which is a fascinating knit for you. This circular beauty echoes all the elements used in the scarf and is finished with a unique bobble and I-cord closure method for a simple but fabulous finish. Experiment with color for a set that's sure to become an instant favorite!
