2018 is off to a stellar start here at Plucky!
For starters, we are beyond delighted to announce that Michele Wang has been appointed Design Director for The Plucky Knitter! Not only is Michele a fabulous designer, but she is also one of our favorite people and we are so fortunate to have her join our little crew.
Michele began designing knitwear when she couldn’t find the exact cowl she wanted in stores. After playing around with a few stitch patterns and cast-on numbers, the Eternity Scarf was born, her very first design. Drawing from her background in fine arts, fashion design and business, she left the corporate world in 2011 to pursue designing knitwear independently. Since then she’s been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave’s knit.wear, Pom Pom, Amirisu, along with her plethora of gorgeous independent designs.
Michele has always been a lover of texture and cables, but her love of colors emerged when she came across The Plucky Knitter. In 2014, she designed her first piece using Bello Worsted in Signature Cocktail and aptly named it Corvina. Soon thereafter, Verdea, Treccia, Seaview and Quadri, to name a few, were released – all designs driven and inspired by the color of the and the textures the yarns created.
While we have our own distinct design styles, we have found they dovetail beautifully, and together we’re committed to developing patterns for you that are unique, modern yet timeless, and showcase Plucky yarns beautifully.
Please join me in welcoming Michele, our new Design Director, to the Plucky Crew!!
