This month's Designer of the Month is Lavanya Patricella, a knitting instructor and designer based in North Eastern Pennsylvania. She's been teaching knitting since 2010 across the United States, and has published more than 60 patterns since 2014. Lavanya's primary knitting passion has been the brioche stitch, and she tutors her students with a very hands on approach to the technique. Her passion for knitting lights up yarn shops and inspires knitters, eager to learn new techniques and expand their creativity. You can come touch and try on some of her samples this month in store - the Divi Divi Shawlette, the Garter Snake Cowl, Sol Queen and My Chrysalis Shawl.
