Picasso’s Coat – ピカソのコート

blue「青の時代」は1901年と1904年の間のパブロ·ピカソの作品を定義します。 この時間の間に、彼は基本的に単色の絵を描いて、青と青緑の色合いを使用していました。 たまにしか他の色で温めました。 この考えは、私が「ピカソのコート」と呼んでいる作品を編むに影響を与えました。



このコートもう少し面白くなるためにと私にいくつかの制限を与えるために、私は世界中の編み物の方のサポートをお願いしたいと思います。 ピカソがやったように私も、青緑の色合いの毛糸が使用されます。毛糸の材質や厚さ関係なく、10mだけを用します。


  • 皆さんの一番好き青緑の毛糸から10mを送って下さい。私の住所のレベル
  • 材料は植物とか動物の毛糸の方が良いだと思います。モヘア、レース、ウール、リボン、アルパカや、他の面白い毛糸お願いします。
  • 毛糸のレベルも送って下さい。
  • コートは、同じサイズの針を用いて編成することであろう。


The ‘Blue Period’ defines the works of Pablo Picasso between 1901 and 1904 when he painted essentially monochromatic paintings in shades of blue and blue-green, only occasionally warmed by other colors. This idea inspired me to knit what I call the ‘Picasso’s Coat’.

I also believe that limits can be very inspiring to create unique pieces of art. Limits help me to become more creative, overcome hurdles and fine unique solutions. 

My idea is to knit a circle shaped coat. The pattern I already designed in my head. The center I plan to crochet, then use a simple lace pattern and finish with a round of short row knitting. The sleeves I am not sure yet.

To make this exercise more interesting and give me some limitations, I want to ask knitters from around the world to support me. I will only use yarn in shades of blue and blue-green, like Picasso did. From each yarn I will only use 10m, regardless of material and thickness.

Therefore I’m asking knitters:

  • To send me 10m of their favorite blue or blue-green yarn. Just 10m, – not more not less. My address_label.
  • Any plant of animal fiber is fine. Acryl only in effect yarns please.
  • It can be mohair, lace, wool, ribbons, alpaca or any other interesting yarn you have.
  • I will use each piece of yarn in order of their arrival here at my place in Yokohama.
  • If possible, please include a label (or copy) of the yarn, so I can keep a record about each yarn used.
  • The piece will be knitted using the same size needle. (at least, that’s my current idea)
  • The progress of the ‘Picasso’s Coat’ I post on my blog.

Once the piece is completed, I will write the instructions, as a free download. With the finished piece and pictures, I will then give a presentation at a PechaKucha Night here in Tokyo.
