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.
A vintage inspired cardigan that is simply classic. A small dab of lace runs along the hem of the body for a bit of texture and small slits are featured on the hem of the 3/4 length sleeves. The body of this cardigan is knit in one piece up to the armholes and then divided to work back and forth. The sleeves are worked in the round up to the sleeve caps.
