My goal for this collection was to design interesting modern pieces that are easy and relaxing to knit. I reduced seaming, kept shaping easy to remember and placed pattern where it remains uninterrupted. A broad range of sizes coupled with novel shapes combine to make a collection meant to appeal to eclectic knitters of all ages. I look forward to seeing how each knitter makes the patterns their own.
