Welcome to the Project Runway Knitalong

Obsessive Project Runway watchers + Obsessive Knitters= Project Runway Knitalong

The idea and premise behind our little knitalong is to join two of our favorite pastimes. Knitting, design & well, watching Project Runway.
There are only a few simple rules.

1~ Knit while watching the show weekly. Or during marathons of seasons past, or whenever you can find an episode on, or while watching on dvd.

2~ Knit a pattern designed by Michael Kors. His work has been featured a lot in the last few years in Vogue Knitting. Go through your back issues & see what you can find!


Make up your own design/pattern that would be runway worthy! ;o) Actually, any design made up on your own would be runway worthy I am sure!
This is where the designer creative juices get flowing! If you have seen items on the show, past seaons or this season, that you thought "that would look rad knit up" then this challenge is for you! Take a stitch pattern that you have wanted to try and make a sweater around it. Take a simple free pattern like many you can find on knitty or magknits and apply something fun & extra. Make it in a different stitch pattern, use a different yarn for the cuffs or rib, experiment with added details like short row shoulders or shaping in the body. What about using dropped stitches to make a deconstructed look? The possiblities are endless! Be crazy, be conservative, all that is important is that you love what you are knitting!

It can be any item; sweater, scarf, tank, jacket, gloves, the list goes on & on.
There will be buttons for your blogs soon. Check back or better yet, put us on your blogroll!

I love Project Runway. Please sign me up!
Neat! I just started a sweater that I'm making up as I go along, so I guess that counts. I would love to join!
