The mission of this challenge was to design an article of clothing that will adorn a person’s shoulders and torso. Complete coverage was not required, but lingerie was excluded. The designers were required to use the yarns provided and to incorporate the leaf charm somewhere in their design and could use any technique necessary.

The Challenge

Out of my leafing mind

Out of my leafing mind was knit to the dimensions of the Alabama Chanin bolero sewing pattern, and was my attempt to express Alabama Chanin’s style in knitting. Out of my leafing mind was knit on my Studio 360, stitch size 8. Alabama, Sewing Patterns, Challenges, Stitch, Studio, Knitting, Swimwear, Clothes, Design

Out of my leafing mind 1

Out of my leafing mind was knit to the dimensions of the Alabama Chanin bolero sewing pattern, and was my attempt to express Alabama Chanin’s style in knitting. Out of my leafing mind was knit on my Studio 360, stitch size 8.

The bolero was knit in two separate layers joined by i-cord around the edges. The “reverse applique” outer layer was knit by putting the leaf stitches out of work on my knitting machine, creating floats. Once the two layers were joined, I wrapped a length of yarn around the floats, creating a faux embroidery spine for the leaves. Because I attached the purl sides together, the bolero is reversible.

This idea came about from looking for leafy inspiration in the wild mish-mash that is my Pinterest feed, which is full of Alabama Chanin photos. While the overall idea isn’t that complicated, I lost my mind a few times with the “reverse applique” layer on the front of the bolero. To keep the grainline of the sewing pattern, I was simultaneously increasing one side of the bolero and decreasing the other, while trying to track whether my leaves were starting or ending.
