Tommy Schafer


Knit designer Tommy Schafer produces beautiful colorwork designs available for free, mainly hats and cowls, but garments, too. “I was raised by extremely industrious parents, who taught me that if you want something you can’t afford, or something that doesn’t yet exist, you learn to make it yourself,” Tommy says. Designs are gorgeous.
