MT Studio Designers

We created MT Studio, our yarn support program, because we wanted to connect with independent knit and crochet designers from all backgrounds and motivations. We also want to share our delectable yarn with all people in the fiber community.


OUR MARCH DESIGNERS



2 skeins Saffron in TML


Dorota is from Poland and has been a knitter throughout her life, she most recently started getting into designing. Her design is inspired by Mount Ararat, a volcano in Turkey. Her mitt and hat pattern utilizes bobbles and she chose Saffron because it was also similar to Mount Ararat. Dorata loves to incorporate lace, nups, and subtle finishes into her patterns. "My second passion is traveling. I love exploring the world, getting to know new tastes. I call my knitting projects the names of the places I visited and those which enchanted me," Dorata says.


1 skein each in Thunderstorm, Cotton Candy Daydreams, and Eleven Lite in Farm Twist


Susan is originally from South Korea but now calls New York home. She learned to knit and crochet when she was young but in college she took a knitting class and that's where her obsession began. Her three color cowl utilizes the honeycomb stitch, which is Susan's favorite stitch. She says she wants to create a familiar yet unique shape with her fave stitch and the color was a fun add-on. Susan wanted to join MT Studio because in her words, "I noticed that your company was promoting and collaborating with new designers in a world where it seemed fairly dominated by only a handful of people. I loved the push and the platform MT Studio creates to show variety of different point of view in the knitting design world."


1 skein Pelican in Tosh Vintage


Emily is from Washington. She's been a knitter for 15 years and a crocheter for 20. She says in the last year she started knitting and designing full-time. Her hat design is a simple design that uses textural interest that really highlights the beauty of Pelican. Emily says she loves to include simplicity in her designs, "basic ribbing or a variation, textural interest like seed stitch or moss stitch, and anything that highlights the yarn the best!"


1 skein of Grapefruit and 2 skeins of Push Pop in Tosh DK alt sample in Antler and Elizabeth Taylor.


Bonnie is another New York Native we're featuring this month. She's been a knitter for 25 years and a designer for 21 of those years. Her baby sweater and hat set was inspired by a baby's Victorian ruffle collar she won in an auction lot. she wanted to design something that seemed more complex than it actually is, she says this design is a great example of that. Her color choices definitely played a part in the design name, we better let Bonnie tell you the story: "I wanted something really bright during the grey days of the pandemic and I was inspired by @ggmadeit's love of all things orange to try orange, and named the design BabyG in recognition of her influence. I do realize not everyone is looking for something so bright so when I decided to make a second sample in another size, I chose the antler and Elizabeth Taylor combination."
