Designer Showcase: OGE Knitwear

November 12, 2017




Meet Vera from OGE Knitwear Design. She hails from Australia and has a passion (perhaps an obsession!) for knitting and designing. Vera has spent her life crafting; you name the craft and she has surely tried it! But like so many of us, knitting became the craft that stuck. Vera's first experience with knitting was when she became an Aunty for the first time.  She really wanted to knit something special for her little nephew, but having never knitted before, the prospect was a little daunting. But like any dedicated maker-of-things, she taught herself how to knit. That was it--she fell in love with both her nephew and knitting!  

Design inspiration comes from many sources. A walk in the city or a stroll in the park can provide just the right spark to ignite a new design. Often a color or the touch of a new yarn will be the inspiration. Vera incorporates garter stitch, simple lace, and cables to achieve the knitted texture she loves. I love Vera's expert attention to details. Note the perfectly scaled increases for her tiny A-line dresses, the genius of delicate lace against rustic garter, the pint-sized touch of cables--not too much, not too little, but just right. I feel Vera has captured baby knitting at it's best.

Vera told me she hopes to write a knitting book one day. Don't you hope she does that soon?

  1. Very cute! It looks like the yarn amount for the dress on the ravelry pattern page has been doubled though, at least the upper end of the range.

    1. I used less yarn than the pattern required and I didn't think to tell the designer that. Maybe I should drop her a line. Lucky for me I was able to take back the unused yarn to my lys.
