Our designer of the month is Soraya Garcìa, the wonderfully talented knitting pattern designer, freelance editor, and knitting teacher behind Yedra Knits. 

Based in Amsterdam, Soraya is a local designer who creates gorgeous patterns based on different techniques and constructions, and her patterns are available in both Spanish and English. She has a close attention to detail in her patterns to make sure that every garment fits like a glove, and she strives to create gender neutral garments that are also size inclusive. What Soraya loves most about her job is that it connects her with fellow knitters and yarn enthusiasts from all over the world as part of an exciting diverse community. As well as creating her gorgeous patterns and her own publication, Soraya has also worked for international publications such as PomPom, The Knitter Magazine, and Life in the Long Grass.

If you are local to our store then pop by to see some of Soraya’s beautiful designs throughout July, such as the stunning Grimoire Shawl, Ghosteen Sweater and the intricate Midsommar Socks. There are so many stunning textures and nuances to these knitted objects up close, so it's well worth a visit if you happen to be in the neighbourhood. If you are slightly further afield then don’t worry, Yedra Knits can also be found on InstagramRavelryPatreon and www.yedraknits.com.
