The loops were made individually by wrapping yarn around the thumb several times and securing a knot before moving on to the next stitch. This took months to complete. The most challenging aspect of this project was that you could not rip out the knitting. Once those knotted loops were created, the fabric was permanent. Then, there was the evenness aspect of similar sized loops. I ended up cutting out one section thus wasting the yarn due to this. This ‘hoodie glam’ as I call it was asked to walk the runway for Vogue Knitting Live.
