Intro

Today we welcome Polish designer Justyna Lorkowska to the show in our latest entrepreneur interview. Justyna and I chatted at Edinburgh Yarn Festival in March, where she was launching a pattern kit with Victoria Magnus at Eden Cottage Yarns (you can hear from Victoria in Episode 21).

Justyna has a wide range of designs, encompassing both accessories and garments, with patterns for both children and men and women. If you are a fan of elegant texture and cables, she’ll almost certainly have something for you.

Interview

Justyna joined me on the couch in the Podcast Lounge at Edinburgh Yarn Festival to chat about her journey from primary school teacher to knitting designer.

Justyna collaborated with Victoria at Eden Cottage Yarns to produce Aisling, a pretty, romantic shawl for a date. These were available as a kit at Edinburgh Yarn Festival and are now available from Eden Cottage Yarns. If you’d prefer the pattern only, you can find it on Ravelry.
