I can still remember my first knitting adventures as a child, when I learned to knit. Cables fascinated me, I loved to swatch them and watch how the pattern evolved as the stitches twisted into so many possible combinations. I designed my first sweater at about thirteen (without having any idea that what I was doing was actually called designing). However, knitting remained a hobby for many years, as I continued to expand my knowledge through technical method and practice.
I grew up in Hungary, studied English and German, and then taught high school for three years. I moved to Switzerland in 2009 and worked as a substitute teacher for about a year, when I decided to try and publish my designs. My first website launched in 2011 with just three designs, and since then, the number of designs available is quickly approaching 100! It is a dream to see so many ideas become reality.
I love creating texture, playing with stitch patterns, colors and shapes and while doing so, my goal is always to write a pattern that is logically structured and easy to follow, for knitters all over the world.
I mainly design shawls, womenâs sweaters and small accessories. My patterns have been published in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Twist Collective, Knit Now and Knitty as well as a number of self-published designs.
The lace pattern of Wish Me Luck is based on the traditional Horseshoe lace - hence the name. The alpaca yarn ensures that the cardigan is soft and warm and adds to its simple elegance. Wearing Wish Me Luck, you can make an average day a bit more special " and who knows what more it is capable of with a name like this :)
