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.
Introduce a little romantic elegance with these cuffs knitted in the delicate decadence of a cashmere, possum, and silk blend yarn. Petite seed stitch ruffles fan over the wrists and extend upwards along the side. A cable band provides a structured contrast to the flowing ruffles and 3x3 rib delivers a reliable, comfortable fit. Personalize with paua, pearl or jet buttons for an exquisite look that's buttoned up but never stuffy. The perfect accessory to make an ordinary blouse, jacket, sweater or dress extraordinary!
