CLOSED Fiberside Chats: Justyna Lorkowska April 16, 2023
Knitted-On Borders - A Perfect Finish!
They can be simple or intricate, lacy or cabled—your choice—one thing is sure: knitted-on borders give a unique touch to a shawl. This Chat with Justyna Lorkowska will focus on how to attach knitted-on borders to a variety of shawl types (and garments!), how to create your own border pattern, and how to determine the amount of yarn you’ll need. Learn how to make your shawl one of a kind!
Justyna (aka Lete’s Knits) is a former English teacher and a knitwear fanatic. She learned her first stitches as a teenager from her mother but gave up on knitting until she had her first child. At that time she took up her needles with passion and began to design knitwear for children and adults. Justyna’s true passion is designing unique garments, especially seamless ones, with intricate details and beautiful finishing. Justyna was widely published in many well-known magazines such as Amirisu, Laine, Making and Pompom. She also published two books, Tabula Rasa: Neutrals, and Tabula Rasa: Speckles. In 2021 she created an indie yarn brand Cecily Grove Yarns offering small batches of beautifully hand dyed skeins by Justyna herself. Justyna lives in Poland with her three kids, and two pups.
