Since her original profile in 2011, Melinda has created so many more designs that play with shape and drape.

Her most recent design, Mossy Pathway Shawlette, is a pretty piece that plays with texture and short rows. It's part of a three-pattern ebook, Exploring in the Woods.

Fluctuate was published in Knit Picks' 2013 Spring Collection. It features a delicate, breezy and simple shape, with the understated detail of a slight cowl neck.

She's had her work featured twice in Knitty. First Nymphalidea, a shawl that plays with wedges of mesh interspersed with solid lines of knitting. This makes for a fluid, pliable, drapey accessory that's quite versatile.

Then there's Rosarian, published in Knitty Sping/Summer 2014. I really love this pullover. It's both batwinged and flattering, with an expanse of fabric that encircles the torso, narrowing down to a fitted waist.

NOTE: Check out her Rav Designer Page for a coupon code, good now through the end of January 31, 2015!

I love her Nymphaladea shawl, it's been in my queue since I first saw it!
