Knitted Collar- turquoise/yellow
Cold seasons require something warm and protective to wear around the neck. Collar is a knit turtleneck with a zip. It is made with rib stich, and after knitting it is gently felted to make the material soft and compact. The material is 100% lambswool.
Collar is an alternative to the classic tubular wool scarf. Most people find it uncomfortable to pull a tubular scarf on and off, but the zipp solves the problem. The zip is a comforable and functionel feature that sets Collar apart from the normal tubular scarf. The zip is also an example of Timmi Kromann`s special signature in form of a quirky or surprising element. You can see and read more here: www.kokolores.dk

From a Local Craftswoman Diary

From a Local Craftswoman Diary

When a new idea begins to take shape, I have to start experimenting. It is always interesting to see where it takes me. Nothing is given upfront because the process mostly takes another direction than first planned.
I make everything as well as hand knitted on my old domestic knitting machine. After knitting it is being washed – perhaps felted – and put out to dry and finally evaluated.
This is how I work, at first with the knitted samples and later – after several experiments – with the final piece.
I enjoy taking part in every process and hope that it is reflected in my works.
