Sweater Club 2020! Episode 1

November 04, 2020

セータークラブ2020 ! 1話目

We've done it again this year, Sweater Club!
The sweater club is a product that Tokuko designs two items that she really wants to wear and sells them as a set. For those who have purchased it, we will sell it with a video explaining the points of knitting by the designer, and we will not sell it separately for one year.

I couldn't escape this year, so I made two works! Starting today, I would like to talk about the heart of design in several parts.

Magazines and books have pre-concepts, and I think about colors and shapes based on those concepts. I have to think about it. Maybe that's the hardest thing.

So, this time, I made two works based on the concept of "making something to match the shirt".

First of all, it is a 2way cardigan knitted with Floating.
Floating is a great yarn from A Verb for Keeping Warm. Since it has a light and soft feeling, I thought that cardigans would be good from the first time I touched this thread.
I think I've probably purchased Floating twice since I started handling it, but I can't seem to find a good pattern even after many years! It's a very good thread, but I was very disappointed that I couldn't introduce it to everyone. With that in mind, let's finally make our own. That's why I chose Floating.

The first delusion was a cardigan with a lace pattern on the front. I wanted to make it look like I was wearing a shawl. I thought about how to rationally create the front descent, but the structure was so complicated that I couldn't get a good image of it even if I drew it on paper, so it took me quite a while to get started.
No matter how many lace patterns I wanted to put in the front body, it didn't work out, so I decided to throw away the idea of ​​putting lace in the front body and build a new knit base.

One day, when I was struggling, I came up with the idea of ​​putting a flechage in the center of the back body, referring to a shape that I thought was interesting to knit once, and finally started! have become.

*Sweater club sales are scheduled for November 20th.
