Drawing on what inspires her most, Bristol Ivy shares the possibilities that she finds inherent in knit fabric. Utilising exercises she uses in her life as a designer, Bristol encourages knitters to make their own rules and push their creativity by asking ‘What if?!’

Notes:
O’Keeffe is worked in the round from the top down with raglan shaping. Short rows at the beginning of the raglan shaping add height to the back neck. After the yoke is complete, the body and sleeves are separated and worked down. Lace panels are gradually introduced in the body, which is then finished with ribbing. The sleeves are worked in stocking stitch and finished with ribbing.
