Abstract [sv]

 Knitting Big är ett undersökande examensarbete i textildesign med fokus på stickningens möjligheter och förmåga att skapa tredimensionalitet i relation till en möbel. Syftet var att få kunskap i stickningens möjligheter till volym samt att svara på frågeställningarna: Hur förändrar den strukturerade textilen intrycket av formen? Jag vill även ta reda på vad etablerade möbelföretag anser om trikåns möjligheter inom möbeltextil. Projektet har utformats i skolans tre trikåtekniker: handstickning/handmaskin, industriell rundstickning samt industriell flatstick. Under projektet har jag samarbetat med möbelföretaget Homeline. Resultatet av projektet är tre stycken separata textilier som alla ger exempel på volym i trikå. Textilierna är monterade som textila överdrag på pallen ”Polly Fat” från möbelföretaget Homelines sortiment.

Abstract [no]

 Knitting Big is a BA degree project in textile design that investigate knitted fabrics possibilities and ability’s to create three-dimensional textile in relation to a furniture. The aim was to learn more about knittings potential in volume and to answer the questions: How is structured textile changing the impression of the form? And what does the established furniture companies think about the possibilities of knitted fabrics in upholstery? The project has been developed in the school’s three tricot techniques: hand knitting / hand machine, industrial circular knitting and industrial flat knitting. During the project I have collaborated with the furniture company Homeline. The result of the project is three separate fabrics which all demonstrate volume in tricot. They are mounted as textile coatings on the stool ”Polly Fat” from the furniture company Homeline.
