Re-knitting 'tester' jumper

As part of my PhD research, I developed methods of re-knitting existing items of knitwear, which I describe as 'treatments'.

To test the re-knitting treatments and figure out some advice on the re-making process, I played with a classic cashmere jumper that I picked up in a charity shop.

Further information, with more detailed images, is available for each step:


  • Re-knitting alterations carried out between October 2012 and January 2013.

  • On show at Prick Your Finger (August-September 2014); Lodz Design Festival (October 2014); Knitting Nottingham exhibition (November 2014); Research Through Design conference (March 2015). Available for exhibition from April 2015 onwards.
