You’re dreaming up designs in your head, trying to find ways to express your ideas and inspirations onto paper, struggling to figure out where to start and where to go on creating your own knitwear designs. How long have you been wanting to transform your yarn into creations of your OWN design?
You look at knitwear design brands like Melanie Berg, Joji Locatelli, Justyna Lorkowska, Alicia Plummer and wonder, how did they get to the point they’re at? How are they able to create beautiful designs so effortlessly?
Whether it’s to start a new hobby or start a knitwear design brand, you want to create your own designs because taking two sticks and string, and transforming it into a unique hand-knit piece gives you a sense of fulfillment and purpose.
But you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, confused and filled with self-doubt.
“Will anyone want my patterns?”
“Am I creative enough to even think about pursuing knitwear design?”
“I don’t even know how to write a pattern!”
“What if I make a mistake and make someone upset?”
“Where do I even start?”
"I just don't have the time to sit down and think this all through!"
I totally understand these internal conflicts that you’re feeling, because I went through them too!
In the beginning, my design process was sloppy and slow.
I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out the next step and it would take MONTHS before a pattern would see the light of day. I delayed pattern releases because I was so AFRAID that my pattern wasn’t good enough.
It goes without saying that I made lots of mistakes. But I learned from them, improved my work and developed a streamlined process that allows me to not only efficiently publish patterns monthly, but also build up my confidence as a designer as I discovered that I CAN create my own patterns that knitters love.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I CREATED MY ONE-OF-A-KIND PROGRAM:
SWATCH STUDIO CIRCLE
The Swatch Studio Circle is more than just an online course: sure, it hits the sweet spot between a clear, linear structure to demystify the knitwear design process and build up your confidence, while allowing for flexibility and adjustments (because, let’s be honest, creativity is pretty tough to pack in a nice little box wrapped in a red bow), but more importantly, as I've found out after running this course for over two years now, it's a catalyst for massive transformations.
