headers_wp9_take_5_hatta What’s your favorite detail about your WP9 design contribution? Decreasing and increasing give Imago an interesting hemline that scoops down over the hips. Any interesting techniques in the design you'd like to tell knitters about? It may not be obvious, but the increasing stitch is an eyelet stitch. Those tiny eyelets give a crisp edge that sets off the geometric shapes in this sweater. FLATS_wp9_take_5_6 What's the most beloved (and well-worn) hand knit in your closet? My most well-worn knit is a navy blue chunky cardigan. I designed this garment 15 to 20 years ago for one of the knitting pattern books. It’s in simple stockinette stitch with long rib finishing. Three things that are inspiring you right now? Walking early in the morning. Taking a trip to London, New York & Hong Kong. Swimming as much as I can.
