Designer Spotlight: Fresh T-Shirt by Edna Hart

Edna Hart’s design process often starts with yarn and color. From there she looks for an easy and memorable pattern stitch. She prefers to keep her patterns basic, so the yarn can really shine.

The Fresh T-Shirt is a great example of Edna’s design style. Knit in our new spring yarn, Berroco Linus, the pattern alternates between sections of stockinette stitch and dropped stitches. That, along with the striped colorwork, really draws attention to the yarn’s beautiful crepe texture. The shirt is knit in two pieces from the bottom up and seamed with minimal finishing. The neckline and hem roll slightly, creating a look of casual sophistication that’s perfect for summer.

How long have you been knitting?

My mom taught me to knit when I was around 10 year old and I have been knitting ever since.

Why did you choose this yarn?

We stock a lot of Berroco and when this yarn arrived at the shop I had to design something with it. I just loved the texture and the colors.

Do you have favorite project you’ve made?

My favorite project is always the one I am working on since that is the one that has my creative juices flowing. It is always fun and exciting.

What’s your favorite thing about knitting?

I love knitting because it is always a challenge – creative and rewarding. It’s a wonderful thing to make a garment with your hands.

Do you have a cool design you want to share?  Or did you recently finish a project with Berroco yarn?  You can email Ashley: or post it to the Berroco Lovers forum in Ravelry.
