Elise Duvekot
Elise Duvekot is a knitwear designer whose enthusiasm for novel techniques led to the stitch patterns presented in her book Knit One Below — One Stitch, Many Fabrics. Her inspiration comes from geometrical patterns and from the many beautiful colors and yarns that are available. The style of her work can best be described as traditional in workmanship, while modern in color and design.

Elise also divides her time between the Old World (The Netherlands) and the New World (Canada). In addition to knitting strands of various yarns together as a designer, she knits words of various languages together as a translator. Knitting and translating both provide ideal environments in which to be creative and productive.
