Pattern Puzzles

The strangest shape was posted for our Pattern Puzzle last Saturday.  I then spent the rest of the day playing like mad with Adobe Illustrator and have broken the pattern making process down into each individual step.  Hopefully in the next week or so you will see this posted on the website as a pdf download instructions.

The last Pattern Puzzle generated some curiosity so I have decided to take it from the "what a great idea" stage to reality.  This will reveal all potential issues as we work our way through all stages of prototyping to the final sample.

To begin I have produced a Production sketch with clear front and back views.  For this pattern I am using my undarted kimono block to begin my pattern plan.  When working with this block I tend to work the back and front on top of each other.  The reason is that so much of this block is the same front to back with the exception of the necklines and the shoulder/overarm line.  (If this is not clear please comment and ask - always, always happy to respond).  Pic below is the entire pattern plan, with more detail in the following images.

The detailed solution to Saturday's Pattern Puzzle.  Using a Studio Faro knit block I trace out the front and back blocks with side seams facing each other with a minimum 6cm gap.  Also, trace out the knit sleeve that belongs to the block.  Following are the briefest details of the pattern plan.  Email me if you have any questions.
