Original Indie Designer Post: October 7, 2011

In my original profile of this month's indie designer, I described her work as an exercise in fantastic manipulation of interesting shape.

That has continued, with a focus on publishing pullovers and cardigans. So I've decided to feature the very pretty Pebble Stone Cardigan. Texture galore! And, I'd argue, located in exactly the right places. It's top-down and seamless (my favourite construction!) and hello! Pockets! Everybody loves a good pocket.

A basic pullover with great texture and shape, ridgy
features great little ridges, dancing across the front of the knit and ultimately placed wherever your heart wishes. This is a technique that can be applied to any ready-made sweater or cardigan, and comes with detailed photos and step-by-step instructions for the ridges.

Finally, there's the OrganiX cowl or scarf. It has that great shape and texture that this designer plays so well with, and the added benefit of looking almost like wood grain! Check this one out, people. It's a lovely scarf or cowl. Something very suitable for gifting for men or women :)
