MDK FIELD GUIDE #24: Spark
Olga Buraya-Kefelian is one of the most inventive designers working today. These five brand-new designs take us on a fascinating ride. Simple techniques + Olga’s brilliant mind = handknits that will leave your friends asking, “How in the world did you do that?” Scroll down to see all the designs.
Olga understands what we knitters love. We want knitting that isn’t too difficult, but has cool surprises along the way. This is the knitting that will take us on a fantastic trip this summer.
Turnstile Wrap. Wear this piece at least five different ways. Already a huge favorite with everybody who’s seen this versatile design.
Paragon Popover. We could hardly believe our eyes when Olga showed us this design. It’s nothing but knits, purls, increases, and decreases—yet the effect is graphic, modern, a big wow.
Penrose Tote. Olga’s fascination with graphic stitch patterns is on full display here. It’s designed in two sizes, with a handle that slips through the other to close it.
Fortune Teller Cuff. A fascinating quick trip into Olga’s inventive mind, this little bracelet is almost magic in the way it becomes so dimensional.
Tendril Necklace. How does Olga do it? Such an original construction for this light, summery decoration—so simple and so very cool.
