Xandy Peters is a knitting designer and teacher. She is best known as the innovator of the stacked stitch technique and for her Fox Paws pattern. Starting out as a footwear and product designer, Xandy turned to knitting as a way to explore textiles and surfaces without using factory production. She has since made a career out of knitting, publishing new patterns monthly and teaching workshops in her techniques. Xandy has been published in magazines such as Vogue Knitting, Twist Collective, Knitscene, and Knitty, but publishes most of her patterns via Ravelry. Xandy also blogs about design, crafting, and baking on her blog soimakestuff.com.
