The Designer

Gwen Bortner

Gwen Bortner is a nationally recognized knitting instructor, teaching at venues throughout the country. She is the author of the popular book, Entrée to Entrelac. Her designs can be found in a variety of knitting magazines and through her business, Knitability, LLC.

Whether teaching at a local yarn shop or at a national knitting convention, meeting new people and sharing the love of knitting is one of her greatest joys.

"Looking at Nate’s inspiration piece the design was simple. And sometimes simple is good! Working a row of stockinette at the color change makes for a smooth transition of stripes, even in ribbing."

Inspired By

Nate Holland
Snowboardcross, X Games Seven time Gold Medalist, Two time Olympian

Nate Holland

With seven X Games gold medals Nate Holland has enough precious metal to gild his driveway by now. Born and raised in northern Idaho, Holland developed a taste for adventure at a young age that has carried him throughout his career. A snowboardcross specialist, Nate defines the sports chaotic style by going all-out in every race. The 2012 winter was no different for Holland, earning his seventh X Games gold, and two World Cup podiums before bowing out with a broken shoulder blade.
Nate’s design is inspired by a favorite striped hat that’s perfect for keeping warm on the slopes and everywhere else.
