If you think that two weeks is fast you should check out her 4 day sweater challenge! That will really knock your socks off! Join me LIVE on the Yarn Thing Podcast for this special episode with Marie as we learn about her story, her process, and her new book.
About Olive Knits:
Marie Greene is the designer behind the scenes (and needles) of Olive Knits. She is also the author of Seamless Knit Sweaters, in two weeks. She learned to knit at her grandmother’s side when she was around 11 years old and – as her family and friends can attest – she never puts her needles down.
Marie loves spreadsheets, Nordic Noir, sturdy bags with handles, rainy days and dinner parties. She’s an early EARLY riser (4 AM! Yikes!), loves Mondays. Coffee, Pinot Noir, stinky cheese and nachos.
Marie is known for seamless sweaters that fit well for any figure and focuses on timeless designs that you’ll wear for years to come. In addition to her designs, Marie travels the world teaching sweater knitting techniques, leads a thriving community of knitters online and is the author of the new book Seamless Knit Sweaters in 2 Weeks.
Seamless Knit Sweaters, in two weeks:
Within this book you will find a collection of 20 knit sweater designs and all of them are seamless! Featured in this book you will find classic, wearable styles with modern details.
Marie bust through the myth that knitting a sweater will take you months to accomplish. She wanted to get readers wearing high-quality knits in only two weeks. Don’t assume that these will all be basic sweater patterns. Each pattern in the book as just the right amount of details to them but with minimal work.
Saving on time starts with top down construction and eliminates buttonholes and simple finishing. In order to keep the pattern moving along and allow you to work on it almost anywhere, most of the patterns have large sections that are easy to memorize.
A big part of completing a sweater in a small time frame is to gauge your speed and setting a timeline. In this book you will not only learn about techniques of making a sweater but tips and tricks on becoming more efficient in your work and how to plan out each section of your project. This can be used for other projects outside of sweaters as well.
