Alex Capshaw-Taylor’s goal as a designer and knitting instructor is to get people excited about knitting. She creates garments and accessories that are fresh, fashion forward, and figure flattering. Her hand knitwear designs have beautifully tailored silhouettes that combine color and texture with an attention to detail, fit, and construction. When Alex is not in her studio designing or in a local yarn shop teaching, you can find her globe trekking in search of inspiration.

Look for Alex’s work on the pages of Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.Wear, and Knit Simple. Her first book, Dressed in Knits, is available in bookstores and online.

If you live in or are visiting the Fredericksburg, VA area you can take classes and private lessons with Alex. Find the class offerings and schedule here. If you would like Alex to teach or lecture at your local yarn shop or fiber arts guild please e-mail worldknits@me.com for more information.
