My second collection for the 8 week project is Rugged Knit. I was combining elements of knitting into drawing which I then translated into Rugs! This project I did for one and a half weeks so it was really fast paced and quite exciting at the time!
I did a lot of drawings from pieces of knit wear and knitted samples, used CAD to emphasize shapes before coming up with final designs to move into rugs.
I created one rug using two-tone… and a second using a carving tool to look like the cable knit on jumpers
I really quite like these images and could see them working quite well commercially… as for these samples, the blue one I think I will keep and the cream one is going to my mum and dad, I think it will look quite nice in front of the fire this christmas!!
Here is a sample brochure of a few other designs and in various colours
