The Designer

Marie Wallin

Marie Wallin has been Head Designer for the Rowan creative design team since 2005. "I was born in Bolton, Greater Manchester, England and after a science based education went onto pursue my first love of art and design (a love that was nurtured by my father - a talented amateur artist) by studying textile and knitwear design at Leicester Polytechnic – now De Montfort University. I was taught to hand knit and sew at an early age by my mother and in my twenties, I taught myself to crochet!

My knitted throw for Stitch Mountain was really inspired by Shannon's blanket, which I understand was made by her grandmother. I wanted the design to be a vertical panel construction as in the original blanket, but also I wanted to design something which would be warm, cosy and comforting to wrap up in. I therefore chose to use our Cocoon yarn and then add heavy cabling to create a 3D chunky effect and then to add a little more colour by using garter stitch striping."

Shannon Bahrke

"My favorite knit item - a blanket that my Grandma Bahrke made for me. My blanket is very special to me because my Grandma is no longer with us and every time I snuggle up with it next to the fire when it is snowing outside, I think of her and what an amazing woman she was. She taught me to be a strong independent woman and to always follow my dreams. She lives on with me in her home made blanket!! "
