When Christel Seyfarth hand knits, she works with many different colours at the same time. By allowing the colours to flow softly from one to the other, she creates a living canvas of gentle colour shifts. The hand knitted models are not planned in advance but allowed during knitting to subtly and intuitively take on a life of their own. She simply follows along, watching the action. These custom knit models take hundreds of hours to complete and are always uniquely personal. When Christel Seyfarth sits down to knit using the knitting machine, she is in charge.
Everything she does is carefully planned in advance and there is little room for improvisation or intuitive leaps. Often, the graphic patterns and the repeats dominate and become the primary focal points.
She emphasizes a thorough finish and knit pin-tucks and piping on all my knit models.
