Knit One

This project came about through wanting to create a piece of work that centred around providing instructions for a skill traditionally taught by hand. I looked at existing publications such as knitting magazines, particularly those from the 1960s which often included eccentric art direction, alongside a myriad of interesting fonts and creative layouts. However, as many of these magazines seemed to be aimed towards people who were already proficient in knitting I felt that many of them did not include the basics, and that the complexity of the patterns might deter someone (such as myself) who had set out to learn to knit from scratch. My outcome was a response to this that was designed to be something playful that due to its compact nature could be picked up by someone who was interested in learning a new skill, without a huge time, or financial investment.
