For many knit fanatics Sandra Backlund won’t be a strange name. Before big chunky cables where seen on the catwalk, museums and everywhere on multi media there was Sandra Backlund.

She creates sculptures of knit. Big chunky cables hug the body and create massive head pieces. Everything is hand knitted with the most beautiful yarn. The images below are from my favourite collection; Don’t walk. Sandra created this collection in 2006, so its a golden olden I’m sharing with you today. To my greatest regrets, there is no new work to talk about from Sandra. Her last collection, also a great one, dates from 2011. There is a good interview about it here. But nothing even hints about what she is doing now. Do you know? drop me a comment or mail!
