Episode 038: Inside Knitwear Design with Ysolda Teague

Ysolda Teague might very possibly be one of the most well-known, well-established knitwear designers of our time. Like perhaps many of you, I was first introduced to Ysolda’s work through her shawl pattern, Ishbel. To date, it is one of the most widely knit shawl patterns on Ravelry. It’s been knit nearly 14,000 times since she published it in 2009. Since that time, she has re-written the rules of knitwear design and self-published a number of collections, built a design studio and team, and also created her own custom yarns. Join us as we chat with Ysolda on The SweetGeorgia Show to hear her stories of how she got started, how she established such a successful design career, and what drives her passion and intense work ethic.
