ALL Knitwear is a slow-growing collection of heirloom sweaters established by Annie Larson in 2010. Her designs often manipulate common knitting techniques where visual outcomes are the product of a method rather than an external source of inspiration. This process of creating visual systems offers a sense of ownership over design that is deeply tied to technique.
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) where she genuinely loves passing this beloved craft on to a new generation.
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.
