I have a confession to make: when Liz and Sara first started raving about Tiny Owl Knits, I was skeptical. Just how cute can one girl’s knitting patterns really be? Well, I will tell you. They can be SO CUTE that I am forced to admit that I was wrong to doubt.
Stephanie Dosen is a singer whose songs have been featured on television (including an episode of Dawson’s Creek), in motion pictures (including last year’s Hanna), and who has performed with bands including the Cocteau Twins and Massive Attack.
Oh yeah, and she’s also a hugely popular knitwear designer. And with good reason! Her designs are cute, functional, and refreshingly different.
We were lucky enough to get to work with Stephanie for Vogue Knitting Live (we still offer kits for her Sleeping Beauty Cowl and Moss & Bluebell Pocket Scarf) and she is every bit as delightful as one would hope.
Liz and Sara knitted her Fawn Poncho and Oh My Bear! Sweater, which are currently in our shop window. Liz modified the poncho to knit it flat, and added buttons – check out the picture up top. Isn’t that adorable? The poncho is knitted with Cascade 220 Heathers and the bear with Cascade 220 Tweed. In both, the yarn is held double, which is an excellent way to get bulky gauge with worsted weight yarn.
If you’re in the neighborhood, we hope you’ll stop by and see the display.
