I have really enjoyed the seasonal collections from Annie’s Signature Designs which launched with Summer Love, continued with Autumn Bliss and now includes the Spring Breeze collection. This series of patterns comes from lead designer Lena Skvagerson, who I’ve been lucky enough to interview for each collection, including this new one.
Back in the spring, when I interviewed designer Lena Skvagerson about the Annie’s Signature Summer Love Collection of knit and crochet patterns, I asked her if there would be future seasons to come. She responded, “We are hoping the first collection is welcomed by our customers, and with our full hopes in this, we are right now in the first phase of planning a follow up fall collection.” And here we are, headed into fall, with a brand new collection launching today: The Autumn Bliss Collection.
Annie’s has always released knit and crochet patterns, offering many great designs over the years, but now they’re doing something a little bit different and it’s super interesting to see. Annie’s is working with leading knit and crochet designers, including lead designer Lena Skvagerson, to create a curated collection of patterns suited specifically for the summer season. It’s about more than just a pattern or even a set of patterns; it’s about evoking a mood or emotion that is relevant to the season of the year, similar to what we see in high fashion.
