Saturday, September 30th at 10AM ET

Åsa Söderman is a Swedish knitting designer who lives in Denmark with a Danish husband. She knits with abandon and has knitted her way from Sweden to Denmark via New York and Boston and Singapore, and Sussex – and Germany. Åsa’s designs are mostly seamless and top down, and she is attracted by unusual solutions and just-so details. The Ziggurat sweater is her signature. It is a seamless, top down, contiguous or simultaneous-set-in sleeve method, developed and polished since the first Ziggurat saw the light in 2011. It became and remains a passion. Åsa is the author of Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless Knits  (in its 4th print run).
