I've dabbled in most crafts, but now, I mostly I design knitwear. Always pushing to be more imaginative and innovative, I combine thoughtful details and techniques to create a beautiful product that is a joy to wear. I specialize in creating stitch patterns and inspiring modification.
All my life I have been a maker and used my hands to create. Knitting was one of the earliest crafts I was taught. I was four when my mother showed me the basics. I have grown to love knitting for it's variety - it can be simple and meditative, geometric and challenging, sculptural, fashionable, or any and all of the above in the same garment at different stages.
"Rawrr" was on of my daughter's first words. This sweater was inspired by my daughter's love of tigers; I wanted to design something that was real enough for pretend, but practical enough for everyday. You can buy the pattern individually, or as part of the Imagination Collection.
Rawwr is knit seamlessly with raglan yoke shaping. Intarsia stripes make a simple pullover into a fun and friendly tiger. The colorwork is charted.
The hood is picked up and knit, with short row shaping so it won't fall off. Extra height in the hood is taken in by the ribbing to create poofy cheeks. The buttonband is knit on as you go. The ears are picked up and knit at the end.
