Hi, I'm Jill. I am trained as a fashion designer with a focus on garment construction and pattern making.
I love hand knits which allow me to create both the fabric and the shape. I am always thinking about knitted things and how to guide knitters toward a successful knitting experience. When teaching, my classes blend my wealth of knitting knowledge with a sense of humor and fun.
I taught classes in line development and portfolio development classes at FIDM-SF, as well as textiles, creative applications, and preproduction. Fit is critical to my view of garment design; I teach grading to knitwear designers and I have developed sizing guidelines for industry companies. I do online webinars and classes as time permits.
I co-authored, and illustrated, YNotKnit: Step-by-step instructions for Continental knitting and knitting basics.
You'll find nearly 200 techniques described on my website.
I also like to write. Visit: http://www.jillwolcottknits.com for more.
