The Crash by Sarah Hurwitz!
From designer Sarah Hurwitz:
I really like checking out other people’s sketchbooks. I love seeing the evolution from idea to reality. I don’t really draw anymore but I do keep a sketchbook of sweater ideas. When I started brainstorming for The Crash, I was really into a furry capelet concept. That soon translated to the shoulder pad idea.
The Crash Sketch
It was winter and fur details were something I was seeing on the street. I liked that I could kind of recreate the fur texture using the loop stitch. I wasn’t really sure of what I wanted going on on the body. I was drawn to a simple moss stitch but I also had dreams of a cabled sweater. I decided to go with something that kind of blended those two ideas. The diamonds were fun to knit exciting like a cable but they had clean lines that were simple enough to let the shoulders shine. It was a good balance so that it didn’t come out too over the top!
