Indie Designer Day

Designer: Christine Roy
Rav ID: Sicilienne
Some Great Designs: Sicilienne's Rav Designer Page

The cold is still here for a while, folks! A new hat, cowl, or scarf never goes amiss.
And this week's designer can certainly fill that need!

Sicilienne has many lovely, textural, cozy-looking winter accessories to please. Pictured here is her latest design, A Tale of 2 rivers - beanie. This design also has the strength of being a unisex piece, as well as having a matching scarf in the very pretty A Tale of 2 rivers.

I also really love the simple yet effective and interesting texture on My comfy little hat. It's a quick wee knit, also designed to be knit flat (for those times you're just not in the mood to work in the round... or maybe have a chronic shortage of dpns and circs!)

She has plenty more pieces, but I'll limit myself to just one more here: the great colourwork cowl that is A cosy cocoon cowl. There's all sorts of great ways to wear this piece which she's photographed in the pattern's page. Since it's reversible it's extra warm, and can be folded up or down. And I really love her combination of neutrals and neons!
