Hi everyone here!
I´m lucky finding this forum
My name is Irina Heemann and I studied fashion and textile design with the specification in knitwear. During my master thesis I worked on a seamless pattern system based on the technique of the short rows.
I try to explain the technique in english:
-all the shapings are made with short rows
-in contrast to contiguous the starting point can be on varios places: hem/button facing, 1/2 hem, front center, neckline, 1/2 neckline and one side of the button facing and so much more
- the knitting piece grows mostly in rotation around the body and not exclusively in rounds
On my blog I document the “birth” of the book with my seamless technique.( You can easy translate it in english or in another language!)
I´m happy, that this technique was awarded by the “swiss design award” and by the “heinrich blanc award” in germany. It is also protect at the German Patent Office.
I hope you enjoy my blog and it would be great to hear your
