Cookie A designs take shape
US designer Cookie A is one of a new breed of superstar knitters, with thousands of projects on knitting community website Ravelry.com made from her incredibly intricate sock patterns. Now Cookie has branched out into garment design, launching Shape and Form, a complete collection of eight garments and five accessories based on mathematical concepts.
She said: “Socks are different from garments, in that there is not much room to change the form of a sock. Garments are less restrictive in form. Instead of fitting a texture onto a rigid form, I experimented with taking shapes and using them in unusual ways to create forms that could still be worn as garments.” We’re struggling to decide which pattern to start knitting first!
