I don't think I've ever posted in knitting before! I still feel pretty new to knitting, it's been a while but Ive only known how to make hats and do cables and such for about a year. I used to be very into crochet just because it made more sense than knitting, but I always wanted to knit. I finally figured everything out by following patterns so I wanted to start making my own designs because that's primarily what I did when I crocheted.
Anyways, at the same time I never have much time to knit because I'm an illustration student at an art college. I just finished a semester and the final for my editorial class was to create my own "Zine" - which can really be any kind of book. I somehow came up with making my own pattern book that was my modern take on the traditional.. kinda ugly.. book of patterns. I noticed that most people have their favorite things to knit, therefore I wish that there were more books dedicated to specific articles of clothing. I chose to focus on hats because they're definitely my favorite. The book itself is not documented yet but here are the two spreads. It was an double sided accordion book with pockets in between the two sides that kept the patterns - if there's any interest I can show what I mean - lol maybe in the actual books section. Basically I knit the hat and wrote down what I did as I went to create the patterns. I'm pretty sure they're not actually all to easy to knit from
Then I used my schools photography studio to photograph them and then I incorporated my illustrations. Hope you like 'em! If anyone wants patterns I would love it if people could try them out for me since I didn't have the time to perfect the patterns.
Here's the front the patterns for the hats are behind the woman wearing the hat
Here's the back, the patterns for the hates are behind the woman wearing the hat as well. I think the image got flipped around... but anyway this side was to show a better look at the hats so people would actually know what they're knitting lol
