Indie Designer Day

PhotobucketDesigner: Susannah Hill
Rav ID: swhill80
Some Great Designs: swhill's Rav Designer Page

This week's indie designer is swhill80, and she's got a great little lace top, perfect for August heat!

Nympheas is a free download on Ravelry - very generous! I love the scoopneck and picot edging.

Surprisingly, there's only 8 projects for this cute pattern, and a couple with cool mods (including vest-i-fying and multi-colourizing).

I always appreciate a garment with good fit, and swhill80's design certainly has that. She says,

"as far as inspiration, I’d say Wendy Bernard is a big one for me. She introduced the whole concept of negative ease in her patterns and that’s made a big difference in the way I knit my own sweaters."

Hear hear! This statement is close to my knit-heart, and has inspired me to get going on a few more design principle posts :)

Thanks swhill80 - can't wait to see any new designs!

This tee looks very my style! Thanks for pointing it out!

That top makes me realize more and more that I need to get some nice little tanks and/or camisoles to wear under thin shirts or ones with eyelets or lace patterns in them.

So pretty and feminine! And I completely agree about the negative ease.
