Designing Chevron

I love to give my customers as much choice as I can to offer them a unique item to them. But sometimes I offer so many choices I make it more complicated for myself and the customer! So for my new fair isle range I decided to focus on one pattern for now, Chevron, and have a wide selection of colour combos.

11I love statement pieces but I have learnt from selling direct to the public over the years that even though statement pieces attract a lot of positive attention lots of people don’t have the confidence to wear them. So with the chevron design I wanted it be easy to wear but also a little bit quirky so I started to looking at adding strips of another colour.

Pattern Inspiration

I am always looking at colourful and patterned images to use for inspiration for punch card designs. As you are restricted to a grid and 24 repeat pattern on a punch card I am instanly drawn to geometric patterns.

I noticed that I kept being drawn to chevron patterns so started to look at how people  use this pattern and colours in their life
