Divide Alpha

Divide Alpha

I'm getting better at these angular transitions, and messing with them more. The last time I did simultaneous multi-directional transitions was on Reflect Zero. I think before that it was Pyramid Charie. This time I took two transitions and intersected them, then added a steeper-angled transition after that. This resulted in some nice symmetry, at least in the design of it.

Well guess what: I like to break symmetry. So I used this intersection to split a ribbing pattern in two. And that might sound as confusing as it did to me at first, but then that's what sketchbooks are for. After confirming the math, I dove right in.

The yarn is a 100% wool that I recycled out of a scratchy sweater quite some time ago. These rustic wools are great as hats, and show off some cool texture.

The Divide Series will give me a chance to do some lower-gauge stuff which I tend to avoid doing. I guess It'll be appropriate for the upcoming months. Plus these worsted weight yarns are starting to pile up on me.

  1. have you found out that when playing with various knit and purl ribbing patterns, the overall knitted fabric shows different widths, and even at time wants to go 3D?

    If you can get a copy of Susanna Lewis book http://www.amazon.com/Machine-Knitters-Guide-Creating-Fabrics/dp/0937274127, even if it is for machine knitting there is a wonderful section about 3D knitting effects.

  2. Yeah, there seems to be this textural thing happening between the wideness of purls and the tallness of knits.

    I'll check out that book, it sounds interesting.
