The Magic Of Earth And Thread: Caitlin Ffrench


Textile artist and knitwear designer Caitlin Ffrench is an incredible inspiration for me and such a lovely human, as well. I am thrilled that our interview is up over at Haute Macabre this week, and I can’t wait for you to read it (You don’t even have to be a knitter to fall under her spell!)

Bonus material and behind the scenes peeks: In preparation for this piece I did a great deal of research…in the form of knitting up several of Caitlin’s patterns. What! That’s totally research, and I won’t hear differently. Each one of them worked up simply and smoothly, with no issues, but with enough detail to keep me interested and engaged. I can recommend her patterns without hesitation (and as I matter of fact, I am knitting another one right now!) I have included links to each of the ravelry pages if you are interested in creating any of these gorgeous knits yourself.

    I’m so pleased to see this interview with Caitlin Ffrench, and so many images of her designs knit by you! She is my favorite knitwear designer and I’ve also knitted up a lot of her shawl patterns. I love that some of them are very simple and quick knits and others are intricate. I’m hoping to cast on the Yule pi shawl this winter if I can find the right yarn for it.
