I am Jill Wolcott Knits. I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because I create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique.
Jill Wolcott Knits patterns are very complete–I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project that leaves little room for ambiguity, but that may challenge current skills. I provide directions for conquering new techniques. My methods are not necessarily shortcuts, but will achieve beautiful results. I bring a background in pattern making and garment construction to hand knitting.
Hand knits provide a perfect platform for me to grow my design talents as well as my technical knowledge. I am looking forward to expanding this into a series of books for hand knitters.
I create knitwear fashion designs designed for knitters seeking fashion that doesn’t wear out. My designs are fashionably classic and I focus on techniques that achieve wonderful results. It isn’t always easy, but you will learn and grow during the process of achieving a product you will be proud of.
