Sabrina, the Swiss designer behind donnarossa, designs modern knitting patterns inspired by places she knows through kite surfing and paragliding. Outdoor sports take Sabrina into nature to relax and recharge creativity. Through a design, you get a memory of that place. Sabrina likes to capture textures of a place and transform them into knitting patterns. Check out the Equiliber pullover. The Payhip site, which provides both a German and an English PDF for each purchase, has a link to Sabrina’s main website, which has lots of great information and video tutorials. NOTE: The main donnarossa site uses a Ravelry cart. Patterns are also available on LoveCrafts.
