Indie Designer Revisited

Original Indie Designer Post: August 15, 2008

Kai is the very first designer I profiled on the Indie Designer Days, and since August 2008, she's been up to lots of great things!

The pictured Tamarai is a lovely kaftan, featured in the Winter 2008 edition of The Inside Loop.

For some adorable footwear, check out her self-published Summer Tabi Anklets. I really dig the colour changes, and the sock shape itself.

Kai is also a great crochet designer. See her Azure Skies shawl, a lovely, delicate and flowing accessory that displays her great skill with crochet design.

And most recently, check out her Stark, a fantastic knit hat. It would do wonderfully for any man to whom you'd like to give a knitted gift. My personal experience is that the gentlemen in my life appreciate the more understated in their garments, and this pattern achieves that wonderfully.

Don't miss out on her blog! It's very pretty, and often features her adorable pet dogs :)

Cute hat - was looking for easy pattern to make hat for one of my girlfriends and she wanted something fitted and simple... no slouch... so Kai's pattern is perfect.
