"DesiLoop", pronounced "They See" loop, was created by SSK in 2011. She is originally from India and likes to call herself “A Student of Life”. She is a self-taught knit and crochet designer who is constantly on the lookout for new techniques, ideas, and inspirations. She has been creating stuff for as long as she can remember. Her designs have also been featured in newsstand and online magazines like Knitty, Tangled, YarnForward, & Inside Crochet. Off late she is growing more and more obsessed with seamless projects and doesn't need an excuse to start one.
SSK also loves sewing, embroidery and all things fabric. She is now working on drafting her perfect fit basic patterns so that she can design all kinds of garments to sew.
This design is completely seamless and uses a great technique for seamless set-in (contiguous) sleeves developed by Susie Meyers (SusieM). The modeled cardigan is made in 50% cotton & 50% acrylic yarn but can be made using any yarns as per your preference and season.
