Origami Knit Sweater – Pattern Heuristic

Paper folding technique where several sheets are arranged into interesting shapes is a very entertaining game for people of all ages. But do you know that with similar technique, you can create a sweater or even a sweater dress that requires minimum of shaping and uses creative and practical heuristic approach to knit a garment?

  • Heuristic methods are simple, efficient rules, helping to solve a problem and sufficient for reaching an immediate goal. These are mental shortcuts that ease the cognitive load of making a decision and speed up the process of finding a satisfactory solution.

The construction of this sweater is very simple: front, back and sleeves are worked back and forth in long straight 4 panels till you get accustomed to constantly repeated rows – browse photos to see how front, back and sleeves are arranged around neckline. Then the decrease is made at one side of each panel (in most rows you will decrease 1 stitch only). Finally everything is folded (as in origami) and sewn together. And best of all – all 4 panels are worked the same way! Thus, every new panel will be knitted faster because you already have relevant past experience.

If you already made garments top-down, bottom-up and look for something unusual you might admire this idea.
