For week 6 we were required to draw knitwear. We were taught how to create a cable-knit repeat and ribbing. I found this aspect challenging as its hard to make a pattern repeat seamlessly. I decided to draw a Stella McCartney cable-knit skirt rather than the typical jumper or cardigan, however I was still able to incorporate the ribbing detail in the waist and hem of the skirt.

My technical sketch is based off a blazer from Abercrombie & Fitch. Drawing the lapels and getting the right shape of the blazer was a bit tricky. I also experimented with adding a drop shadow which I think makes it come off the page more. Overall I feel that I've improved a lot with using the pen tool on Adobe Illustrator.
