    Description

    During college I spent my holiday breaks working in the family business, which is to say that I was on a factory floor sharpening industrial knives. When the weather was cold I lived in crew-neck sweatshirts. Truth be told I miss those days. I still love the comfort of my old favorite sweatshirts. I designed this as a way to unite my past and present--a way to carry the crew necks with me.

    The Knife Grinder’s Daughter is knit from the bottom up in the round. A continuous stripe of ribbing runs from the side hems up the body and down the sleeves to the wrists.

    Techniques used: Short rows, decreasing, picking up stitches, knitting in the round.

    Sweater is meant to be worn with 4+” / 10+ cm of positive ease.
