There are many ways to draft an original pattern. Draping is one of them and is never talked about nor covered in knitting. With commercial knit fabric, we will construct garments right on ourselves and use this “mock up” as a basis for our knitting. We will transpose the pieces onto gridded marker paper then plug in our gauge and figure out areas of simplification. Motifs may be previewed, stitch patterns “tried out,” and details tested. Most importantly, a personal and customized fit will be ensured. Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; have knit a whole garment; able to design own garments; able to write own patterns
