SAMPLE OVERVIEW Swatch 1 shows ways in which simply shaped insets can add inter­ est (and possibly value) to a stan­ dard sweater pattern. some basic design skills and the appropriate technical know-how. and at the same time gives more opportunities to develop individual interpretations of a standard pattern block.The charting device frees the knit­ ter from complicated stitch and row calculations. Individual segments may be sym­ metrical polygons in repeat for­ mation. a standard sweater pattern can be transformed into a highly desirable and individual statement. Pat­ tern. More com­ plex applications in Swatches 2 and 3 involve knitting separately shaped panels in a variety of structures and fibres. For each successfully sub­ divided garment pattern. Following on from these examples. texture and colour can be blended to create a rich patchwork surface. the main empha­ sis of this article is to encourage a creative approach in the use of the charter.

The main sample col­ lections and design sheets demon­ strate the scope and versatility inherent in this method of work­ ing.

Now by moving the markers along the bars marked S and V you can lighten or darken the colour. As I said at the beginning. Now pick up the pat­ terned garment as a brush and return it to the figure.

If you have done the illus­ tration for a pattern you are mar­ keting you need to give it a name.If you had a rib cuff you would need to tip the lines to the diago­ nal and so would have to draw in the lines one by one using the straight line tool. Ed's Comment: Readers might be interested to note that these articles arose out of my curiosity about the clear. Drawing with a computer takes time and practice. stylish drawings I saw of Wendy's garments. You must decide on the effect you want to achieve and how much time you can devote to it. If you have used a coloured brush for the fabric pat­ tern you may now find that the colours used were not sufficiently different in tone for the difference to be obvious in black and white. The lines of the garment now lie on top of the fabric pattern and you can remove the unwanted bits by rubbing them out carefully (Figure 2b). All this is time consuming and rotat­ ing and bending the brush can dis­ arrange the pattern considerably. Find an area to one side or beneath your drawing at least as big as the garment and cover it with the brush using the 'grid' tool to help you align the repeats (Figure 2a). an all-over geometri­ cal design. To get the pattern to run down the sleeves you will need to rotate the brush to the correct angle then place it on the sleeve. You can go back at this stage and darken or lighten one of the colours to make a greater contrast. See Figure 3a and compare it with Figure 3.5 inches to make your drawing half size. You can alter this to make your page larger or smaller when it prints. The collar band and cuffs are in stocking stitch and I have left these plain (Figure ':). PRINTING When you come to print you will be offered a default size for the page.. It is best to make up a brush the width of the garment first by placing in several repeats side by side. You can use the 'bend' and 'rotate' facilities in Deluxe paint to overcome this.· . give details of yarns. . and perhaps put a price on (Figure 5). so I can confirm the impact that they have! The completed garment knitted from the final patterned version is shown on page 51. Remember to do this in proportion. This pat­ tern is basically striped so it is much more obvious than it would be with say. If you want to submit your design idea to a mag­ azine or to be made up into a gar­ ment then you need to add some construction details and a knitted swatch. FINISHING You can now add a frame or part of a frame to define the illustra­ tion. then bend this brush so that it fits round the body. A well drawn illustration can make the difference between being regarded as an amateur and being regarded as a professional. If you are using a page larger than screen size you may find that you get a message telling you that you haven't enough memory to make a stencil. we are not after life drawings but a neat and professional looking repre28 sentation of your designs and on the whole it pays to keep it as simple as possible.by the brush. RIBS AND BANDS I have shown the rib band by fill­ ing the area with an all-over pat­ tern of lines in black. You will need to alter the angle for the different parts of the sleeve and chop the brush a bit to get it to fit around the bend at the elbow. in other words don't make the page shorter without making it proportionally narrower or you will distort the figure. Your manual (page 95) tells you how to bend a brush. So if the default size of the page is 8 inches by 11 inches you could enter instead 4 inches by 5. Click on the colour you want to change and on the circle labelled HSV. . type of machine etc. You do this in Deluxe Paint by clicking on the colour indicator. You need to fully understand the capabilities of your drawing program in order to make the best use of them. Pick up the garment as a brush and lay it on top of the patterned area. It may take some time and patience to get it right. In this case you will have to work 'back to front' as it were. Remem­ ber to remove the remnants of this work before you go on. This doesn't mean you have to labori­ ously re-colour the drawing. in fact if your brush does not contain plenty of back­ ground colour the stencil is essen­ tial as you will be blotting out the lines of the garment with the brush. Your fabric pattern is still in the dark contrast colour you used when building it up but when printed in black and white it will not be obvi­ ous that the fabric pattern isn't as dark as the lines. Using the irregularly shaped brush tool will obviate the need to rub out the over­ lap as you can trace carefully round the patterned part of your garment to make a sweater-shaped brush which you can return to the figure leaving the overlap behind. but if you reg­ ularly need to make fashion illus­ trations then it is well worth invest­ ing the time and effort in learning the techniques and in building up your library of fashion figures. The colour in your drawing will be altered at the same time and the new value for that colour saved with the picture. BEND AND ROTATE You can see that the pattern stamped in this way does not curve round the body in the way that it would in life (Figure 3).

Do not be tempted to sew with the presser foot up as this will take the tension off the thread altogether and you will get great loops which are hell to unpick and will even­ tually jam up the machine. a stitch length of zero has very important because knitted setting the machine for a fairly long fabric behaves rather differently to stitch with a slight swing. Stitch length is sewing stitches.

Unfortunately. the knitted fabric can stretch or the edge may be too bulky. On the other hand. As you can see. I suggest that you make two rows of stitching.

Any of the stitches shown in Diagram D are suitable for cut and sew but the one I tend to use most is a three step zig-zag as in Diagram F. the more the needle goes into the knitted fabric the more stable the edge is after the unwanted fabric is cut away.

EXPERIMENTATION The only way you are going to find out what you. It is not necessarily a TECHNIQUES FOR CUT AND SEW Cut and sew uses the thread of the sewing machine to bind the knit­ ted stitches together so that they cannot unravel when cut. I just strip it from the machine and stitch the open edge of a button. We may want it to join pieces a problem with very large or bulky items but you very quickly get used to working this way. that is. This means in order to have the zig-zag going over the well but a big. so if you couple of practical applications such as making buttonholes and stitching on buttons. This will be better than a single row of very close together stitches and a good deal less bulky. the sewing machine makes three little stitches as it forms the zig-zag. As the feed is only moving the fabric forward. you have to work with the bulk of the garment in the arch of mess. These straight stitches give great stabil­ ity to the knitting and the zig-zag provides a great deal of stretch. there feed has to move the fabric back­ wards and forwards continually and in rather small steps which is tricky on uneven fabric with a lot is very little stretching of the fabric so you get an even seam and that of give. There are a great many sewing stitches FOR MACHINE KNITTERS suitable for making up. using two different widths and quite a long stitch. Even the maximum stitch length may be too small to give an even seam. instead of just swing­ ing from side to side. When making up we will want to form the flattest join pos­ sible. I would strongly sug­ gest that you try out the stitch/ten­ sion/pressure combination on a small piece of fabric before you use it for real on the garment. What we want to do will govern our choice of stitch. A stable Jacquard may work to the left. lumpy double bed tuck would probably end up in a edge.

Depending on how much shaping

is required on the garment and how

you have used your motifs, it may
be more practical to work cut and

recommended for neckline shap­

FILLING THE GAPS
When a motif is isolated in stock­
ing stitch, it can create a 'gap'
between the motif area and the
background. This gap can be quite

troublesome to .close once the work
is off the machine, but is readily
dealt with whilst you are knitting.
Before you start, ensure you have
several good lengths of your back­
ground colour handy. (We used
contrast colours in our pictures for
clarity, but these contrasts would
shadow on the right side of the
work, whereas the background
colour simply blends in). For
machines which select needles,
you can commence hanging the
gap filling threads as soon as
needles are selected, but for
machines- such as Silver, where
needles are in working position
irrespective of the patterning, you
will wait until the first row of con­
trast has been knitted. Threads to
fill the gaps are simply hung over
the nearest needle to the motif
which is to knit the background

colour - as shown in Picture 1

(page 5 7). They will normally knit
in quite readily- into the back of

the next row. However, if you have
a lively yarn, where the end sticks
out awkwardly, then when you

start, simply tuck it under the con­
trast thread which is being carried

18c:J17c=J·=15c::Jl.4r=ll)c::J12CJllc:Jioc:::J·=·=1=6=s=·=l=2=·=====--

from the motif to the carriage thus holding it in position.
You can either re-hook the fill­
ing thread on every or alternate
rows - or work at the side near­
est or opposite the carriage each
time. Some yarns gap more than
others - smooth shiny ones are
the worst, so may need to be filled
each side on each row, whereas
time can be saved on yarns which
are fuller by working in whichever
alternate row method suits you.

Picture 2 (page

5 7) illustrates the

each side on every row hook up.

gap between his front and back legs
and this is a typical area which can
gap within a motif. Therefore, not
only the edges, but the needles for
the inner leg area have been filled.
This shows clearly on the reverse
of Sample 1.

INNER FLOATS
The long floats forming between
the leg area have been dealt with
whilst knitting, by the simple expe­
dient of picking up a group at a
time and hooking them on to a cen­
tral needle. Not every single float
has been hooked, as some hooked
from early rows will actually cover
and restrain some made further up.
The effect is shown on Sample 1.
Sample 2 shows an alternative
method of dealing with the floats
-note that the filler thread hardly
shows here, as it matched the back­
ground colour. Once the work was
removed from the machine and
pressed or steamed as required,
straight stitches (again shown in
contrast, but colour would match

that which is under the floats in this case it would be the back­
ground colour) have been made
across the floats, worked pretty
much at random simply to hold
down and shorten the free float
length. Take care just to slide the
needle through the back of the stitch
and there will be no signs of the
float-neatening on the right side.

Further neatening when the work
is off the machine should only
involve cutting o ff excess filler
thread. A finished single bed ver­
sion is shown in Sample 3. This
also gives you the opportunity to
compare the proportions of Taurus
with the Singer Jacquard original.
Slightly different due to the nature
of the stitch type and the differ­
ence in yarns used, but quite accept­

If you wish to use a picture from a book you must first obtain written permission from the pub­ lishers. Of course.for exam­ ple a design of ten by ten squares will be printed out over the same area as one which is thirty by thirty squares. As supplied. PRINTING Printouts can be obtained as a hard copy of your designs for reference -write the file name of the design on to the printed copy and you will be able to find it easily in the pro­ siderably smaller than your com­ puter's memory. Once you have created a single design it can be viewed as an all-over pattern. default setting and will automati­ fit the sheet of paper . The large printout is the There are three sizes of in-built text cally scale the printed pattern to which can be used to write mes­ sages on your knitwear. This allows the edges of the design to be checked to ensure that all is correct where the pattern contin­ ues into the next repeat. Please remember that the normal copyright laws apply to scanned images. which is an optional extra. the palettes can be changed and colours selected from any of the 32. The scanner is used to copy a picture directly into Cre­ ation 6 where it can be manipu­ lated by any of the regular facili­ ties available. One of the beauties of this program is the abil­ ity to create a design of any size (up to the full needle bed width) and send it directly to the console. . gram next time you require it. THE SCANNER A useful feature of the program. unless you use a design from one of the Dover series of Craft Design books (or others) that specif­ ically state they may be used. No more laborious drawing out of reader cards! Large patterns may need to be broken down and sent in smaller portions that will fit into the console memory as it is con­ COLOURS There are up to 256 colours avail­ able for use within a design (this does depend on the type of graph­ ics device you are using and which display mode you selected in SET­ CREA). it is much better to see them on screen before knitting them as it is quicker than actually knitting sam­ ples to see the effects.CHANGING SIZES paper. or as large as will fit on to the an exercise to do to familiarise your­ self with the program.

The large printouts take a while on a dot matrix printer and the noise level is a definite hint that it is time to go and make a coffee! Laser and ink jet printers are of course much quieter. the colours in each individual palette are arranged as a coordinated set. The printout can be either in a very Next time. Custom sizes can be created by typing the message and then using the enlarge facility. just as they do to photo­ copies. so using only one palette for your designs will automatically ensure that the colours match well. but I think it is definitely worth the expense.

gap between his front and back legs
and this is a typical area which can
gap within a motif. Therefore, not
only the edges, but the needles for
the inner leg area have been filled.
This shows clearly on the reverse
of Sample 1.

INNER FLOATS
The long floats forming between
the leg area have been dealt with
whilst knitting, by the simple expe­
dient of picking up a group at a
time and hooking them on to a cen­
tral needle. Not every single float
has been hooked, as some hooked
from early rows will actually cover
and restrain some made further up.
The effect is shown on Sample 1.
Sample 2 shows an alternative
method of dealing with the floats
-note that the filler thread hardly
shows here, as it matched the back­
ground colour. Once the work was
removed from the machine and
pressed or steamed as required,
straight stitches (again shown in
contrast, but colour would match

that which is under the floats in this case it would be the back­
ground colour) have been made
across the floats, worked pretty
much at random simply to hold
down and shorten the free float
length. Take care just to slide the
needle through the back of the stitch
and there will be no signs of the
float-neatening on the right side.

Further neatening when the work
is off the machine should only
involve cutting o ff excess filler
thread. A finished single bed ver­
sion is shown in Sample 3. This
also gives you the opportunity to
compare the proportions of Taurus
with the Singer Jacquard original.
Slightly different due to the nature
of the stitch type and the differ­
ence in yarns used, but quite accept­
able and in proportion.

Please remember that the normal copyright laws apply to scanned images. which is an optional extra. the palettes can be changed and colours selected from any of the 32. The scanner is used to copy a picture directly into Cre­ ation 6 where it can be manipu­ lated by any of the regular facili­ ties available. One of the beauties of this program is the abil­ ity to create a design of any size (up to the full needle bed width) and send it directly to the console. . gram next time you require it.
