'Striped Pattern in Repose'


Materials: Wool. Mohair, alpaca, and silk yarns
Techniques: Hand Knitting
Size: Medium sized jacket
Date Made: 2001
This piece is based on the moment in time when the overall appearance of the forest gradually starts to change from fresh green to autumn colour. By mixing various textured yarns, I tried to capture the natural harmony of this scene. Trying not to disrupt the rhythm of the striped pattern, I inserted tucks here and there to create a sense of depth.
