We are now in the fourth week of our Designer-Along in aid of the amazing charity, KnitFor Peace. When we first discussed the idea, several months ago, we had a wish list of some of the world’s top knit and crochet designers. We were humbled that our top 6 all agreed to take part without any hesitation and we thought we would give you a little more insight in to the designers we have been lucky enough to work with.
Arne and Carlos are our Scandinavian heroes whose inimitable style graced the world of fashion before they turned to knitting. Their Christmas balls are legendary and we also love their book of toys. Recently they have worked with Regia to bring us specially crafted sock yarns. Arne and Carlos have a fantastic YouTube channel with lots of useful hints and tips.
When you hear the name Jane Crowfoot you instantly think of her beautiful crochet alongs. She launched her Lily Pond CAL last year with Stylecraft yarns and this year’s offering is called Frida’s Flowers – and colourful homage to the artist Frida Kahlo packed full of Mexican motifs. Jane’s book, The Ultimate CrochetBible, is THE book we always turn to for help with every crochet project.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every designer who has generously given their time and creativity to our Designer-Along.
