Conceptual Alphabet

When setting out to make a unique set of lettering, I chose to take the practice off screen and use knitting as a way to spell out its own call to knit. Each letterform is hand knit in garter stitch and is a singular connected piece. None of them are separate pieces sewn together afterwards. Some stitches were picked up later, but there was no gafting or seaming. Each letter is a product of knit stitches. So for each letter, I more or less established a knit pattern of sorts although most were fairly freeform in thier making. K, M, N, O, R, and S were some of the establishing letters to imply the standards for the alphabet. There were some challenges of how to incorporate angles and curves into this medium to convey the letterforms recognizably.
