52 Swatches

 Welcome to my drawing challenge!

52 Swatches is a challenge created for knitwear designers. Stitch anatomy is something taken into consideration when drawing design details for submission. So, each week we’re going to draw a new 4″ [10cm] (1200px) square of a particular stitch pattern. Over time, the stitch patterns will become more complex.

The stitch patterns are posted to my Pinterest account. Start with month one and continue for 52 weeks or 13 months. You don’t have to start at the beginning of the month or even the year. I made this challenge to be as flexible as possible.

If you need to stay accountable, use #52swatches in your social media posts to show off your sketches. We’ll be your accountabilibuddies!

I’ll be starting the challenge on Saturday, February 3rd, and sharing my finished sketch on twitch first. Best of luck!
