March 2018 - THEA COLEMAN

March 01, 2018

Thea Colman became a knitwear designer almost by accident. After working in various advertising agencies, she took a break to be home with her young daughters and fell into knitwear design.

Thea's designs are wearable, comfortable, and always have great details and well-considered textures. She mostly designs women’s garments and accessories; using cables, lace, and little details to make designs that are classic and wearable, but just a bit unique.

Throughout the month of March stop in to see Negroni, Mamie Taylor, and Vodka Lemonade on display.

Thea has also designed a hat pattern named after Dutch gin - Genever. This beautiful colourwork hat is made to be knit in the always classic Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. Stephen & Penelope customers will get $2 off the pattern price! Stop by the shop to get your copy of Genever! Read more about Genever, and how the crossing of Malia (owner at Stephen & Penelope), Thea, and Andrea Rangel's paths in Shetland inspired this design on Thea's blog.
