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:
Woodman is worked flat from the bottom up with shaping at the front neck edges and sides. Once the body is complete, stitches are held for the fronts and the back is worked with exaggerated armhole shaping.
Stitches are picked up along the back and the held front stitches, epaulettes are worked using welts, before the sleeves are worked from the top down with a short row sleeve cap. Once the sleeves are complete, a neckband is picked up and worked outwards from the front edges.
