    It is an exciting and creative career because you are designing products. Those products are produced for retailers, some small some very large to sell....at a profit.
    Badly designed products tend not to sell. Good design sells well. When products do not sell well companies lose money and sometimes go out of business. Therefore knitwear designers are trained for 3 or 4 years to understand all technicalities producing good quality products.

Therefore knitwear designers are trained for 3 or 4 years to understand all technicalities producing good quality products.
      They learn how to source yarns, how to cut and construct garments, how to grade, how to produce production patterns, how to track and predict trends, how to illustrate, how to produce fabric on many types of machines and how to programme machines. Some of these tasks they may not be personally responsible for when they get a job as a Knitwear Designer, it depends on the company, however they are trained to do it non the less.

      I might also add the point, Knitwear isn't just jumpers and cardigans. Sports wear is often knitted, your t shirt... knitted, socks are knitted an awful lot of underwear is knitted, sports shoe uppers are often KNITTED!
