Weekend by Jen Geigley
Brand Jen Geigley
WEEKEND IS A COLLECTION OF 12 SIMPLE, MODERN KNITS YOU CAN LIVE IN ON THE WEEKEND; KNITS YOU CAN CREATE IN A WEEKEND.
Knit using bulky and super bulky yarn, these sweaters and accessories exude comfort and ease. My mission is to create casual, contemporary, wearable handknits that can serve as foundation pieces in anyone’s wardrobe. Approachable patterns that aren’t too complex, making knitters say, “I want to make that!”
I’m a minimalist at heart and I truly believe less is more, and simple is good. To me, simple equals wearable. Simple equals doable. And there’s no greater satisfaction than finishing a hand-knit piece, trying it on and falling in love with it. My goal as a knitter is to make go-to pieces that feel just right, like my favorite soft gray pullover from college. If you spend precious time knitting a garment, you want to love it and wear it a lot. It’s as simple as that. That, to me, is the definition of hand-knit success. And that’s what I hope to share with you in this collection.
