Hello, I'm Anne Kuo Lukito. I'm a hand-knitting designer and my works have been published in many books and top magazines, such as Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene and Twist Collective,. I've also contributed designs to and worked with several yarn companies. Recently, I designed the Fall Collection for Manos del Uruguay yarns.
While knitting is my dominant craft now, I've always been a crafter and sewer. I used to make my own clothes in high school and made jewelry. Two years ago, I got a bit into silversmithing as well.
Aside from freelance design work, I am also have a couple of publishing projects coming down the pike. I also have a small boutique business, Crafty Diversions (craftydiversions.com), which distributes other designers' patterns and products to yarn shops and retailers.
Inspiration for Pfeiffer Falls came when I was thinking about what my mother would have wanted to keep her warm when she was ill. The result is a classic, but modern multi-functional scarf with a large billowy, rounded hood. Two large, deep pockets add style and offer a great place to store a few trinkets, and keep your hands warm in chilly weather as well.
Pfeiffer Falls comes in 3 sizes, includes instructions for optional ruffles that flank the scarf ends and along the hood rim.
Pfeiffer Falls was originally published in Interweave Knits, Winter 2008. This was my #1 selling pattern for a long time. It's still a very popular pattern at #2. (In case you're curious, my current #1 seller is Weekend Shawl - http://craftydiversions.com/patterns/weekend%20shawl.htm)
