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.
Capture the charms of Rome in this graceful raglan top. Knit flat, the clear directions also include the opportunity to personalize the length of torso and the sleeves and details like waist and bust shaping are surprisingly easy to execute. Traveling vine lace forms around the neck and sleeves in a subtle edging and cascades diagonally from the scoop neck to an asymmetrical point at the side of the waist. Bring the romance of the Trevi Fountain with you every day with this alluring knit.
