My Grandmother taught me how to knit when I was seven years old. However, I quickly lost interest making Barbie tube dresses and put down the needles for several years. My passion was renewed when I moved to New York City to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where I majored in Fashion Design and specialized in knitwear.
I've worked in the industry as a knitwear designer for over 10 years. I've gained lots of experience in construction, fit, and materials which I apply to my hand knit designs as well.
I design handknit patterns for neoknits, a number of small yarn companies, and have been featured in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, and Twist Collective. I have also written a book of knitting patterns, Metropolitan Knits, which is due out June 2013 from Interweave Press.
Guinevere is the perfect little cardigan for the warmer weather. This swingy, cap sleeve cardigan is full of little details and interesting textures. Two different lace stitches make up the bottom then continue onto a jersey/reverse jersey fully shaped neck finish. The body is then completed with 1x1 rib cap sleeves.
