Indie Designer Day

Designer: Valeria Kerkkä
Rav ID: nettlefly
Some Great Designs: nettlefly's Rav Designer Page

This week's designer Valeria has impressive, seductive, colourwork.

I'll share three with you:

Harjakset (pictured) are a traditionally-shaped pair of mitts with contemporary colourwork dancing across its surface. I particularly love the wee detail on the thumbs.

Kesärenkaat is a funky, free pattern for a knit bracelet. Now, normally I'm not huge on knitted jewellery, but you need to check this one out. It's a very clever combination of the curling tendency of stockinette, use of those beautiful scraps of yarn we all have, and fanciful functionality.

Sironta is also a free pattern that uses colour in a fun way. This time it's in a cowl, with a solid background and striking pops of slip-stitches that give a textural wonderland of chevron shape and bright hues.

And please check out her Ravelry designer page for more. She does indeed do more than just cool colourwork!
