The Venetian Collection
The idea of designing knitting patterns first occurred to me on a trip to Venice, where the architecture and mosaic floors filled me with inspiration. My first ever design was the Doges Palace Cowl, containing elements of lace, cables and colourwork which mimic the architectural features and brickwork of the building. The islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello also provided me with numerous ideas. This page gathers together all my designs based on the Venetian lagoon.
