Xandy Peters is a knitting designer and teacher, best known as the innovator of the Stacked Stitches technique and for the Fox Paws pattern.
“I want to encourage knitters of all levels to use their craft as a form of self expression, to try new techniques, and to share their projects and experiences. There’s so much more to this craft than fancy yarn and trendy patterns. I place more value on personal growth, applaud artistic expression and celebrate those who make the most of their materials.
I am a big fan of exploring new techniques and stitches, especially when there’s colour involved. I love to see all the different ways knitters personalise my patterns.”
Starting out as a footwear and product designer, Xandy turned to knitting as a way to explore textiles and surfaces without using factory production and has since made a career out of publishing new patterns and teaching workshops. He has been published in magazines such as Vogue Knitting, Twist Collective, Knitscene, Knitty, and Pom Pom Quarterly, has a Bluprint class teaching the stacked stitch technique and continues to self publish patterns monthly. Xandy also blogs about design, crafting, and baking on soimakestuff.com and posts craft videos on YouTube.
