I'm Alex Tinsey and I design stuff! I like simple textures and interesting shapes. I like soft wools and kettle-dyes. I like ice cream. Addis. Hats. Spinning. Ducklings. And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Kenyon College for a while. I've been knitting since about 2004, designing since about 2006. I was making up my very own garter stitch squares and randomly-decreased hats before that, but I won't count it. I've had patterns published in Knitty, Knit Simple, the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, and Interweave Knits, though I generally go the self-publishing route.View all patterns by designer (24) »
Nothing like a pure silk bandana- cowl in the richest ruby red to please the luxury-loving cowpoke in all of us (what? "Cowpoke" and "luxury" totally go together, I'm almost sure of it.) Worked side-to- side in good old fashioned garter stitch to show off this most delicious of yarns, the ends of the "bandana" are grafted together with kitchener stitch to avoid the need to tie it on in any way. Bandana in the front, cowl in the back!
