Elyse Allen

NEW YORK, NY

I make fine knit accessories - hats, scarves, and fingerless gloves. I find the best materials I can, because they're worth it and they last. I make the work by hand where I live because it's better for the work and better for my neighborhood. I love to mix yarns, to play with colors and patterns, and to make them all explode a little bit with some sparkle and gleam. Cashmere gives beauty, warmth and durability; Swarovski crystals activate the surface, adding depth and motion. I make my pieces special to be near, like reuniting people with their long-lost favorite thing.
