Most designers would like to have an opportunity to peek at the portfolio of another designer. I hope my “Sketch and Stitch” will give readers a glimpse into my own portfolio and maybe even inspire some veterans already working in the industry. Use this book as a starting point for your own projects. I encourage you to borrow and adapt ideas in its pages. This book contains pages and pages of working sketches and photographs of knitted creations and knitting patterns.
Galina Carroll lives on Long Island where she has her studio. As a freelance knitwear designer, she sells her original designs to sweater and yarn companies. She also designs custom-made sweaters and accessories for private clients. You can find her published work in the pages of Vogue Knitting, Knit It, Knit 1 and numerous other publications. She also sells original knit and crochet patterns on the web on Ravelry and on her website: www.galinacarroll.com.
One of the best books I ever bought!!! The sketches are amazing and the free stitches are very easy to follow!!! Highly recommended it!!!!
Sketch And Stitch inspires my daughter who is a student at FIT. She especially likes how the design “process” is so simply and beautifully laid out. The book is a useful tool for my wife, a prolific knitter herself. And me, I just love looking at the drawings and photos. It’s my favorite coffee table book. It’s a great gift for those like the art of fashion.
Very BEAUTIFUL book, great sketches and creative knitting patterns! Love it!
Such a Beautiful book! I keep it on the table for my inspiration. Love sketches and wonderful knitting patterns.
I know this designer from Ravelry and love her work.
VERY BEAUTIFUL BOOK! My daughter loves it, she is a student at Parsons.
