Xandy Peters is a knitting designer and teacher best known as the innovator of the stacked stitch technique which can be seen in their Fox Paws pattern.

They started out as a product designer and turned to knitting as a way to explore textiles without using factory production. Xandy loves exploring new techniques and stitches and especially combining that with colour creativity. Xandy wants to encourage knitters of all levels to use their craft as a kind of self expression and feel bold trying out new techniques. 

Xandy has published patterns in Vogue Knitting, Pom Pom Quarterly and many more as well as hosting an online class all about the stacked stitch technique. 

You can pop into store this month and see their beautiful samples!
