Indie Designer Day

This week's designer has a great eye for texture and cables.

Her matching Lyonet Hat (pictured) and Lyones Cowl use those elements in a way that makes that yarn sing. Such tidy little cables and textural combinations!

Criseyde Scarf is a free, delicate, lacy-looking scarf. Something that would be great for the very early autumn, when the chill has just started to return to the air.

Lady Bertilak Cowl is a classic cowl in two lengths, with a fantastic story about its inspiration. I'm not telling: go to the pattern page and read it. :)

And for a bit of fun, there's the Don't Blink Illusion Scarf. Dr. Who fans take notice! This is a neat illusion scarf pattern. Looking for a quick gift for a Whovian? This would be perfect.

NEW INFO: Just before I published this post I checked for the latest info, and there's a brand new pattern from karendawn!
It's the lovely Astolat Shawl. It features beautiful texture, classic shape, and an in depth inspiration summary on the pattern page. I love when designers let us in on their thought process and various muses!

You can also see some upcoming designs in progress: the Dorigen Cowl and The Wife of Bath’s Cowl.
