I love knitweave. I think it’s a vastly underutilized machine knitting capability. I have only begun to explore it, but hope to do so much more.
I love that it creates a fabric that is completely different from most other sorts we create on our knitting machines. It resembles a woven fabric in so many ways. It makes me think about how our knitting machines share so much heritage in common with weaving looms, the origins of our punch cards going right back to the early patterning cards of the Jacquard looms.
Have you tried knitweave on your machine? Marianne Henio has created a lovely pattern for a very smart knitweave jacket, a bit in the Chanel style. I can’t wait to try it. I guess I loved it just as much back in 2016, when I first purchased the pattern, and still love it so much that I purchased the pattern again this week! Oops. My error can be your gain. Marianne has kindly allowed me to pass on my ‘extra’ pattern to another knitter.
