Holiday Sweater Patterns
For Spoonflower’s Design Challenge this week. They asked pattern designer’s to be inspired by the knitting patterns of Fair Isle. Feeling inspired by the season I took this theme further by incorporating a holiday design into the linear patterns with Christmas trees, candy canes, snow flakes, and holiday colors (some traditional and some not). I started by designing the individual elements, creating liner stripes of each element, and once the pattern was finalized I added the sweater texture on top of those graphics. Creating a sweater feel with vivid holiday icons. It was a lot of fun to learn this new sweater technique for this week’s contest.
