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.
Your knitting skills have never looked so good! Be the heroine of your own life and swathe your neck in a scarf of incomparable softness and subtle luster. The textured folds of seed stitch ruffles become a cable band that draws the eye to the luscious depth of this luxurious yarn. The cozy neck rib can be easily adjusted to your preferred length. Finish with another cable band which flares into a second and ruffled end for one last note of drama. This perfect one-skein project showcases an exceptional blend of cashmere, possum, and silk.
