Music has a tendency to inspire me in many ways. It holds memories, improves my concentration and helps a shy girl like me get up from my seat and boogie down on the dance floor. When the design team and I first saw Berroco Mixer, a soft, shimmering yarn made from different materials fused together, we immediately gave it the nickname “Disco.” It shimmers when light hits the fabric, it drapes and moves beautifully on the body, and makes fabulous fringe. So it seemed natural to draw design inspiration from the ladies and music of disco and soul. Each pattern from our Spring/Summer ’15 Mixer collection was named after these fabulous female musicians.
Happy making! Don’t forget to boogie down!
