Over the past two years, Emma Fassio has been knitting up a storm!

She's been published in a number of yarn pattern booklets, as well as many self-published patterns.

Where to begin?

Well, the pictured knit at right, Celebrating Azzu's Shawl, is actually a neat bit of knitter-centric historiography. This shawl references one she published at the same time as the original profile I wrote, called Azzu's Shawl.

Clessidra is a neat little knit, simple lines and shape, but doing double duty as a cowl and mini cape.

Sensibilità was published in the booklet Knitting on Italian Traditions. A continuation of her fantastic use of simple shape to create unique-looking knits.

Another pattern booklet offering is Knitting an Italian Day. In particular, check out Jaana, possibly my favourite of Emma Fassio's patterns. A lovely little shell top, with ruffle and texture done just right! I'm getting a bit of a historic fashion vibe from it too, which is likely why I'm so very keen on it.

Her own ebook Sweet Moments sums up her design aesthetic; in particular check out the very pretty and delicate Allegria.
