In Oktober 2010 I started a series of interviews, where I asked knitwear designers from around the world questions about their design process, the yarns they use and how the designs come to life. By publishing these interviews, I've learned so much, and I hope you have too.
It's time for this month's designer interview! While I sometimes interview designers I haven't knitted anything from yet, this month's designer made the Argyle Cabled Beret pattern which I knitted (and loved). I really like her other designs too, they're so usable but all with that "little twist"!
Without further ado, I want to present Cassie Castillo to you all fine readers of worsted-knitt.net :)
Exactly - to the date! - one year ago I posted the first designer of the month interview with Katie Ferry. During this year I've interviewed a lot of talented knitwear designers (and one crochet designer!). It's been such a pleasure, and I hope you've enjoyed it too!
My first "contact" with this month's designer was Pauline, a brilliant bonnet pattern for adult women. I still haven't knit one, but like the pattern very much nonetheless. Another current favourite of mine from this designer is the Entrechat - don't you just adore it?
Ok, now for something completely different. You may know I don't crochet, at least very, very seldom. Anyhow, many of the visitors that find their way to worsted-knitt.net via a search machine, are actually looking for "crochet pencil case pattern"! Why is that?
Oops, look how far June is already! Time for the Designer of the Month post. This time I interviewed the talented Alexis Winslow, who lives in Brooklyn, NY and works as a printed textile designer for children's bedding. You can catch up with her on her blog, knitdarling.com, where she writes, and video blogs about all her knitting adventures.
It's Designer of the Month time again! This time I interviewed a designer whose work I adore - it's so wearable and sexy! Even if your gauge is off and the sweater ends up a huge hip hop piece, it's still pretty (see my Corona here).
I first learned about this month's designer a good while ago when I was looking into vegan knitters. I found this interesting blog, and after noticing the person behind it had a Finnish last name, I was intrigued! It turned out her husband is of Finnish origin! But let her tell more about herself:
