KNITWEAR DESIGN

KNITWEAR DESIGN

Knitwear design as the name suggests is the design stream dealing with the study of knitted materials. And knitting in simple language is inter-looping of yarns. Knitting is an age old technique and probably everyone has seen somebody knit..Be it grandmothers or a neighbour. Now, knitwear is a separate stream for design students. Many institutes provide courses in knitwear such as NIFT, Institute of Knitwear Designing, Pakistan knitwear training institute, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising etc. 


In knitwear design study, the basic subjects are knitting, pattern making, fashion illustration, history of clothing, draping, study of textiles etc. In short, the courses provide a brief introduction to other important aspects of the stream like the knowledge of different textile materials, knowledge of how clothes will be made, about the history of clothing etc. 

Now-a-days, we have specialised machinery for knitting, and both the machine and hand knitting is taught in colleges. Although some may find knitting boring, but many of our important clothing comprises of knits. E.g.: winter wear, undergarments etc. 

A big misconception is that knitwear designers only have jobs for winters which is completely wrong, knitwear designers have work throughout the year. Also, the pay packages are good, if done from a good institute the starting salary ranges b/w 20K-30K on an average.

Knitwear is in high demand these days. Since knitwear student has knowledge of textiles and fashion design along with knitwear, such students are being sought after as they are of high importance to companies and designers. Now, a single person with a knitwear degree can do the job of 3: Knitwear, textiles and fashion design. The pay packages and placements have also increased now. Also, it’s not that knitwear design is only confined to clothes; there are a lot of products in the market these days which are made in knits like toys, furniture, bows, caps etc.

So, if you have love for knits and you are looking for a successful career, knitwear will always have a thumbs up!
