Information for Knitters

PLEASE NOTE: As of this writing, all 1,000 spaces have been reserved–though the scarf is still in progress. Many thanks to everyone who expressed an interest!

Until Knitter 1000 casts off, knitters will be needed to add their stitches to the scarf.

Participants need not have previous experience in front of the camera. They need only self-identify as knitters and have a true passion for the craft. Age, race, shape, and gender matter not at all. Please note, however, that children (and adults, for that matter) who sit must be able to work an entire row of approximately 22 stitches without assistance and in a timely fashion.

Shooting will take place either during scheduled public shooting days (notice of which will appear in this blog when details are confirmed); or individual sittings may be scheduled directly with the photographer.

Private shoots will generally take place at the photographer's home studio on Chicago's North Side. To inquire, please write to portraits@franklinhabit.com with the subject line "1,000 Knitters." Be sure to include your desired dates and times for sitting. Driving and/or public transit directions will be provided when a sitting has been confirmed.

All models must agree to complete a standard model release prior to the session. Models under 18 must have their release co-signed by a parent or guardian, and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at a private individual sitting.

There is no charge to participate in the project, and models receive no compensation.
