Blog Post Headers (20).png

This week on the Yarn Alchemist podcast, I answer a very popular question that plagues many new designers: should I be following trends? I break this question down and address the several layers that this question brings:

  • When is it appropriate to follow trends in knitwear designs?

  • The mistake that designers make when following trends

  • Why focusing on trends (if you're not doing this one thing) can leave you high and dry

  • How to be your own trend-setter.
