Sari Nordlund is a professional knitwear designer living by the sea in Helsinki, Finland. Her work has been published in prestigious knitwear magazines such as Laine, Pom Pom Quarterly and Amirisu. Sari has also worked as a freelance designer for yarn brands such as Woolfolk and Brooklyn Tweed.
Sari’s design work is inspired by Scandinavian minimalism and Nordic landscapes. She loves to create timeless classics and translates her love of contemporary Scandinavian design into her patterns. Sari loves to knit cables and all kinds of textured stitches using rustic natural fibres in neutral colours, without renouncing colourworks and openwork.
At Barcelona Knits she will be giving two workshops on cables: one for beginners and one advanced. Knitting cables is fun because there are so many different styles to choose from. You can even create your own by combining them. Do you dare?
