Some Great Designs: JumperCables' Rav Designer Page
If you like pretty, feminine, and simple shawls, scarves, and cowls, then you need to have a looksee at this designer's work.
JumperCables (as you may deduce from her rav name) loves cables, and it does make an appearance in her work, but overall there's a focus on beautiful, uniform, and often understated texture.
Take the pleasingly synchronous January Scarf (pictured). A perfect example of simple shape, texture and technique to create a fantastic finished project.
Chilly Cowl also demonstrates this sensibility. Shape and texture play wonderfully together in this pattern, creating something that would look oh-so-stylish just peeking out from the top of your bundled-up winter coat.
With a name like Duck Soup you know it's got to be a good pattern. This one has the same JumperCables aesthetic; she's smartly photographed this simple scarf in a variety of styles, showing just a glimpse of what you can do with a basic shape and fashion-imagination.
To round off this designer recommendation, I'll point you to something entirely different in her Mayfair. A simple (and sturdy!) looking accessory.
