KNITTING DESIGNER

Dear reader, welcome to my knitting world.

This a more personal greeting from me: I'm 24 years old, grew up in Denmark and i'm still here. When I am not knitting, sewing or doing anything else creatively, I'm studying a bachelor's degree in Purchasing Management at VIA Design & Business in Aarhus. In addition, you can find me in the gym or playing music.


I have been knitting since fall of 2019.

My first project consisted of a sweater called "I made this sweather" from Stoff & Stil. I clearly remember how people told me it was a big project to begin with - and so what? I

I had faith in it, Youtube and good support from my friends and family, so I did it. It took me approx. 2 months while I was studying.


It's not about the size of the project, but about patience and the will to get through it. If you are impatient, you may need to start with a smaller project where you get a faster result or with thicker yarn on thicker sticks.

Specialty in knitwear


Throughout my education, I took a specialty in knitwear, which is machine knitting aimed at production in the fashion industry. Here I learned how to construct knitwear within material selection, needle selection and construction within fit as well as many different types of knitting patterns and options.


Med specialet i rygsækken, gjorde kun min interesse for strik større. Pludselig havde jeg strikket flere forskellige typer striktrøjer, og kastet mig ud i at designe selv. 
Hele min læringsproces har bestået af viden fra mit studie, branchen (fra mit  studiejob i tekstilbranchen), fra Youtube og bloggeren: Sister Mountain.


Fra at have lavet mit første design i sommeren 2020, til hvor jeg er i dag, er det gået rigtig stærkt. Jeg fik oprettet en Instagram konto @Buelund_designs, hvor jeg hurtig blev vild med det venlige og inspirerende strikkemiljø. Jeg nyder at dele samt opleve andres kreationer derinde. Samtidig håber jeg også, at jeg kan give inspiration til dit næste projekt.


Velkommen til og tak fordi du læser med.

Louises strikkefacts


Det er helt sikkert: strik er ikke kun en hobby der koster lidt, men også en hobby der giver dig ro.


Det er mere bæredygtigt at strikke selv, man får højere kvalitet end hvad man køber i butikkerne og det holder længere.


Kvalitet og pris hænger sammen ”Skrønen om uld der kradser, er i virkeligheden fordi den uld der bruges er en billig uld i dårlig kvalitet. 


Jeg elsker selv god kvalitet ”Der er ikke noget bedre end et godt projekt, hvor du læner dig tilbage, og finder ro i det du strikker, mens du nyder en god kop te eller kaffe med god samvittighed. Du har nemlig snart lavet et produkt, der holder i mange år.
