Lars Rains

My design work has been featured in Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, Knit Edge, Chicago Knits, and Knitty. My patterns have also been included in collections for Malabrigo Yarns, Noro Yarns, and Cascade Yarns.

I published my first book of Icelandic sweater patterns, Modern Lopi: One, in 2015 and one of the designs from that book won the Grand Prize at the inaugural Independent Designers contest at the TNNA Summer 2016 fashion show.

My most recent book, Presto: 10 Accessory Projects You Can Knit in a Weekend, was released in 2016. It features bulky projects using Madelinetosh A.S.A.P. yarn.

I love playing with color, texture, and innovative constructions and techniques. Hope you enjoy knitting up my patterns!

I can always be reached most quickly at modernlopi@gmail.com.
