THREE GENERATIONS OF KNITTERS
THREE INTERPRETATIONS

I designed this sampler baby afghan in 1988 for my first grandson. I have made 6 personal ones for my grandchildren and a few samples including an adult version.

Knit by Karen for future grandchildren in Plymouth's Oceanside Organic cotton.

about_us_11_balls_of_yarn_with_hats.jpg

When I fall in love with a yarn I enjoy seeing how many completely different styles I can create with the same yarn:
women's sweaters numbers 14, 15, 16, and 17
women's sweaters numbers 58 through 77
children's sweaters numbers 31 and 32

To design knitwear you must be passionate about yarns and knitting. When I see a new yarn I not only see beautiful fibers and colors, I see a fabulous creation in the making.

COMPUTER GENERATED SOFTWARE IS NOT USED TO WRITE MY PATTERNS


about_us_10_computer_with_sweaters


Pattern writing software is useful. However I do not use any. This is a design studio that combines knitting expertise with creative design. I love writing patterns, they are custom developed and easy to follow, including precise schematics.

Rebecca started this afghan while a high school student (strips not crocheted together yet). This Adult version of the Baby Sampler Afghan is knit in Berroco's Pure Merino.
