Our featured designers
Italian designer Dario loves to play with construction and colour to create modern sweaters and accessories that are a delight to knit and wear. This month, he has designed a cosy poncho with a marled colourwork pattern that blends Rowan’s Hemp Tweed and Kidsilk Haze, on page 28.
Lucy grew up in Orkney, and her design work features a strong emphasis on cables, texture and lace. She has produced a number of books featuring Celtic-inspired cables, including Illuminated Knits and Celtic Cable Shawls. Turn to page 45 to find her intricate cushion design.
Amanda’s knitwear design CV includes work for high-street fashion chains as well as knitting magazines and yarn companies, and her eye for the latest styles always shows through in her work. Her latest pattern for The Knitter is an elegantly textured jumper, which is on page 25.
