I think it's so cool that, over a relatively short period of time, people can create such wonderful bodies of work.

This week's Indie Designer Revisitee was profiled only a few short years ago. Way back whens, she had only one (quite cool!) pattern posted.

See her very recently published Tribune Scarflette, right. It's part of a Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project ebook, a collection of five patterns entitled Hot Child in the City.
It's a great little collection of wearable, young, fashionable and uncomplicated accessories, perfect wee knits to start and complete, just in time for the chilly winter weather.

This ebook isn't BreeanElyse's first Malabrigo project. See also her piece, Twisted Cowl, part of a collection featuring other great designers like Stephen West. Fantastic work. This cowl is chunky, textured, fabulous.

There's really quite a lot to talk about, but I'll limit myself to just one more knit: the Anna Cowl. This is a long, delicate and lacy accessory; just the right amount of lace, mind you. Just the right amount to say, peek above your coat collar, and with a great amount of full-on knit to keep your neck nice and tidywarm.

I'm really looking forward to BreeanElyse's future designs. Her aesthetic is well developed; one that I think is wonderfully wearable and attractive.

Wow, great stuff! I love the cowls, especially that first one. So nice and chunky!
