Local Talent

October 21 2015 – thisisknit

Events like last Saturday's really bring home how lucky we are to work within a community of such talented and creative individuals. It's incredible to think back to Carol's first free pattern in Knitty and to see how far her clever designs have taken her (with a lot of hard work along the way I'm sure). So we thought it would be a good time to showcase some other local designers - Yvonne McSwiney and Eimear Earley - as they have each recently released new patterns, and they both happen to be adorable knits for little ones! Camden Twist First up is Camden Twist by Eimear: a 4ply cardigan of top-down construction, with just enough cabling to keep things interesting, and to tie in with the look and feel of Townhouse Yarns Camden Tweed. This cardigan is available in sizes ranging from 0-3 months to 2 years and is absolutely free. Go check it out! Castleknock Yvonne has covered sizes all the way up to 14 years with this refined saddle-shoulder vest: Castleknock. The design is clever, using interesting techniques to achieve a tailored finish. This vest is also knit in Yvonne's very own yarn, Swing Sock, demonstrating that she is a woman of many talents! :) Thanks for the wonderful designs ladies - we look forward to seeing what you come up with next...
