ALL Knitwear is a slow-growing collection of heirloom sweaters established by Annie Lee Larson in 2010. Her work manipulates common knitting methods with a focus on creating visual systems that can produce a variety of outcomes.
Annie was born in Seoul (1983) and grew up in rural Wisconsin. She attended the University of Minnesota for apparel design and later went on to work for Target Corporation, designing clothing for juniors and men. She purchased her first knitting machine in 2009 and is considered to be self-taught. In 2016, Larson began teaching machine knitting at The New School (Parsons) to undergraduate fashion students.
ALL Knitwear is based in Brooklyn, NY where Annie knits sweaters every day of the week and ships to customers all over the world. Garments are knit to shape on a made-to-order basis, creating nearly zero waste.
