Heather Dixon of
Army of Knitters shares her inspiration for
Howlite..."Howlite’s prototype began as a commissioned piece for my friend, Marlene. She had wanted me to adapt an Oscar de
la Renta design for her in grey cashmere. After a few headaches, I managed to
get a mix of cables and seed stitch together that worked. Three years later, I
am happy to release a new version of that design with lacy knit cuffs and
collar. Worked as flat pieces that are seamed together."
