Who is Scott Ian McFarland?

As a formally trained sculptor, designer Scott Ian McFarland translated his skills to knitwear design when he took a graduate elective in contemporary knitwear at the Academy of Art San Francisco. Amazed by the technique of taking long strips of various materials and turning them into wearable objects, in addition to discovering the control and creativity that knitwear allowed him– right down to a single stitch–Scott began to create his first collection.

Scott Ian McFarland’s experience with three-dimensional shapes, texture and color leads him to experiment with knitting techniques to create unique one-of-a-kind pieces. Scott experiments with diverse fibers such as wool, cotton, and ribbon to name a few. His designs have been shown at San Francisco Design Week and the North-by-Northwest Fashion Competition, as well as New York Fashion Week 2009.

    I have a few chunky sweaters, none quite like those featured here, but they are very comfortable. These sweaters also fit nicely and look very nice under a coat – weather permitting. They aren’t itchy and scratchy, and they are very easy to care for. The blue sweater above is something I’d own, but the others are a bit out of my league. Either way, nice to know that designers are keeping this must-have item alive and evolving, and traditional too.
