Luscious cables, beautiful texture, and bold, graphic elements are hallmarks of this designer's style.

Her Libellula (pictured) shows off that boldness and texture. This pattern is also seamless, easily adjustable, and a fantastically-relaxing exercise in the glories of stockinette.

The Phase Pullover has a very interesting shape: it's oversized everywhere except at the hip. This lends the garment a fitted look with the advantage of comfortable ease, a cozy look, and generous sleeves. Check it out: it's a look that I think is quite flattering, and unlike most sweater patterns out there.

Fiori di Cuore shows what she can do with touches of openwork on a long sleeved sweater. I really like the sleeve details and the super deep neckline.

Delicious cables abound in the Minimissimi Sweater Coat. They swirl across and visually pop out of this very cozy and attractive garment, playing with length, shape, and stitches.

And just to give you a taste of her accessory design: there's the cabled loveliness of the Polonaise Cowl and the roving pom pomed scarf Tintinnio (I super love this one!).
