Amy’s Thread: Martha Wissing, Designer to Watch

Last month Martha Wissing released a great pattern, the Rosalie Poncho.

Martha’s poncho was written for Berroco Ultra Alpaca or Modern Cotton,  it is a versatile garment that is adaptable to your climate. The lace boarder detail adds knitterly interest and shows Martha’s great talent for subtly feminine, incredibly wearable designs.

Full discloser, Martha is a former Berroco employee so I am completely biased. Not only is she talented, she is an incredibly good person. Not a week goes by when someone around the office doesn’t sigh, “I miss Martha.” Martha at one time also owned a yarn shop so she really “gets” what a knitter wants.

You can find several other designs by Martha in our pattern library or visit her design page on Ravelry to see all of her published work. This page will be worth bookmarking.
