Alison Mayne of Knitrospective says, “I started designing shawls during my PhD, which researched the connections between crochet, knit, wellbeing and Facebook. When I was travelling, not sleeping or should have been reading/writing, I formed lots of patterns shapes and stitches. Once my PhD was complete I decided to launch Knitrospective.” Find and purchase Alison’s patterns from the Designs section of the website.
