Home. The place where family dwells, where friends are welcomed, where we gather close the things we hold most dear. The place that restores us, where we create, where we dream, where we are free to be our most authentic selves.

BURCHETT by Viktoria Shevchuk in Dapple

“The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.”

Lyudmila Aksenik

Moscow, Russia

Lyudmila is Russian and lives in Moscow with her husband, two daughters and two dogs. Her knitting journey started in middle school, but back then it didn’t quite "stick." Later on, as a stay-at-home mom, she began knitting for her daughters, and in 2014 she started selling her hand-knit items. Realizing she wanted to create her own designs, Lyudmila began publishing patterns in 2016 (with English translations since 2017).

Cormel is offered in both English and Russian.

Alma Bali first learned to knit as a small child with her grandmother. When she grew up, her mother — a weaver and textile designer — introduced her to the art of weaving, but it’s through knitting that Alma came back to the textile crafts as a designer. She especially appreciates how knitting brings people together, and holds dear the strong friendships she has built throughout the knitting community.

Alma splits her time between architecture — she founded her own architecture company in Paris — and knitting. Wherever she finds herself, Alma always has knitting at hand. She likes how both practices navigate between abstract concepts and concrete objects.

Bresson is offered in both English and French.

ema marinescu


Ema inherited the crafting bug from her grandmothers, both of whom were amazingly creative women. After learning to knit as a child, many years later she discovered that her hands didn’t forget and were hungry for more. Nowadays she designs playful garments and accessories inspired by the natural world.

She loves long forest walks, gardening, baking bread and making sure that everyone around her has all the handknits they will ever need during their lifetime.

Camille Romano

Helsinki, Finland

Camille Romano is a French freelance illustrator and visual designer based in Helsinki, Finland who has not dropped her knitting needles since she learned the basics as a child. She prefers fairly simple yet modern designs with interesting visual or technical details such as cables, the whole range of brioche stitches, and cropped/oversized fits. Inspired by nature, seasons, and landscapes, at the core of her design work is a passion for color, textures, and a curiosity to experiment with new techniques.

Oiva is offered in both English and French.

Knitting for Viktoria is a wonderful world full of creativity, experimentation, mathematical calculations and, of course, communication with an amazing community of like-minded people. She loves to invent new designs which originate in her mind as 3-D models. Ideas may come to her at anytime, in any place, and always result in making her absolutely happy.
