Reknit spectrum

The reknit spectrum showcases a comprehensive range of ‘treatments’ that could be used to rework an existing item of knitwear.

The treatments are grouped according to the way in which the original garment is ‘opened’, rather than – as is usually the case with historical instructions – the problem to be addressed.

Once you have selected a knitted item you would like to rework, use the spectrum to generate diverse ideas. Note that each treatment is highly flexible in terms of scale, aesthetic and finish.
