Back Story

Details

The Klee Collection is a booklet with six unique hand-knitting patterns inspired by the work of Modernist master Paul Klee in which slow fashion meets high art by knitwear designer Renée Callahan of EastLondonKnit. Available as both a digital download and in print, the collection includes two pullovers, one cardigan, two shawls and one pair of fingerless mitts. 

The Klee Collection is a collection of modern garments and accessories designed for the knitter to enjoy both the process of knitting, with innovative constructions, as well as the product of their work, with wearable, beautiful garments. This collection features two garments designed in Blacker Swan DK, the Angelus Novus Cardigan and Shawl. 

“The Klee Collection is a gathering of knitting patterns close to my heart. Although I trained as an art historian, I rarely get a chance to see even a fraction of the amazing art on offer in London,” explains designer Renée.“A few years ago the Tate Modern held an exhibition of Paul Klee’s work and it was like visiting an old friend. The inspiration to design my first collection came quickly and I have named each of the designs after a painting by Klee.”

Each design features unique geometric lace knitting inspired by the strange and wonderful shapes that run like a language through Klee’s work, providing interest and detail on extremely wearable garments. Selfish knitting at its best, this collection is intended to be worn and loved for years to come.

The booklet is A-4 size with 41 pages. More images of projects and errata can be seen at eastlondonknit.co.uk.
