The Coda has quite a few themes running through it! I am fascinated by numbers, sequences, formulas and codes. It actually makes me quite emotional at the beauty of maths. I admire so much the work of the women at Bletchley Park during WW2, breaking codes; this is my homage to them; a forties inspired style, with shape and set in sleeves and a high neck with a pattern that is a whole series of codes.
It is knitted in Fair Isle, using both RS(Knit) and WS(Purl) colour work. The Main bodice to underarm of the jacket is knitted on one needle, and then divides for the armhole shaping. The edges and the collar are integrated into the knit. The colours are a reflection of the work of the Glasgow Girls; exceptional women artists who embraced many different artisanal forms, embroidery, painting, glass work, etching, print making etc.
