BEHIND THE DESIGN
In my mother tongue, ‘geweef’ translates as ‘woven’, and the word ‘saamgeweef’ or ‘woven together’ has a particular meaning for me in this design. Not only is this book a collaborative ‘weaving together’ of ideas and people, but the original inspiration and design elements weave together a myriad of eclectic cultural references and indigenous forms of knowledge and making. Geweef hopes to translate these vibrant patterns and textures to your needles in a playful and textured manner, with the possibility of creative color-mixing and color combination.”
ABOUT THE SHAWL
Geweef is a long rectangular shawl/wrap that begins at one end with an I-cord. Stitches are then picked up along the I-cord and worked on the bias. Each right-side row involves increases and decreases in the border stitches to give the piece an asymmetrical appearance. The shawl/wrap features various stitch and pattern sections that are worked in a long mirrored repeat throughout the length of the shawl. The colorwork bands incorporate a technique that is a variation on the Roosimine/ Roositud technique, a type of inlay colorwork technique predominant in Estonian knitting. An i-cord edging throughout provides a neat, finished appearance to the knitted piece.
