Indie Designer Day

Designer: Annamária Ötvös
Rav ID: pumpkin73
Some Great Designs: pumpkin73's Rav Designer Page

While this chilly Spring still hasn't sprung, it seems to be a great time to look at some lovely patterns that hang on to that sweet, cozy feeling that you can relish in during winter.

Pictured is one of my favourites from this week's designer, Constant Carving. All pupmkin73's designs have this quiet warmth and stillness. You can see it in the strength, solidity and regularity of the lines, shapes and textures of Constant Carving.

What I just said there, all that artsy-fartsy speak, might come more clear when you take a peek at these two other examples of her work: Roller Coaster Raglan and Omelette.  Both these pieces have that simple, strong, and solid look, and also hide some very clever and clean techniques. Roller Coaster Raglan includes curved raglan shaping, Omelette has fantastic finishing details like turned hems and a hidden button band.
