Knitting and crochet designer Lisa Richardson was our special guest at our recent Rowan Yarns launch. She joined Rowan in 2003, and, after years in many different roles and tasks as part of the design process, is now a celebrated and well established designer in her own right. Inspired by shape and texture, Lisa’s designs showcase interesting stitch details, unique garment structure and stylish techniques with a classically understated, yet innovative brilliance which is reflected in her global status.
