Indie Designer Day

Some Great Designs: platformnine's Rav Designer Page

Fairly new to designing, platformnine has already created a cool portfolio of knits.

Her Beckett Beret (pictured right) is a wonderful example of texture as central in a knit. The cable work is definitely eye-catching and incredibly interesting and unique. (The gorgeous photo with storm clouds a-brewin' doesn't hurt, either!)

In Diamond Days platformnine gives knitters an adorable set of fingerless mitts that can easily be either funky cool or classy/understated. I wasn't surprised to see that she states they were inspired by the movie Moulin Rouge!

There's more to see on her Rav Designer Page!
