All those Squares is a mixture of lace, cabled and textured squares. The back and two fronts are constructed in one piece, then the collar, sleeve ribbing and front lapels. All those Squares is made in super-soft alpaca, silk and cashmere, which is just glorious to drape around your body.
I created my design company to challenge the misconception of ‘easy is dull’. What I create is simple in form, pleasing to knit and a delight to wear. The yarns I sell are luscious and the hand-made original shawl-pins are not only beautiful to look at but delicate and light, so a pleasure to wear.
