“My knitting style can be summed up in three words – modern, innovative and versatile” says Michael Dworjan, the man behind Aptenoknits. Located in New York City, Michael’s most recent focuses have been double knitting (particularly unisex double knit lace and double knit cables) and reversible knits. He’s also partnered with Cephalopod Yarns on a soon to be realized shawl and has been published in Love of Knitting magazine with several other publications pending.
“I’ve been exploring reversibility in accessories; well, at least accessories that makes sense as I don’t feel seeing both sides makes sense with everything. There’s no point to making certain garments reversible unless you can show off both sides. You shouldn’t make something reversible just to say it is – that’s not my thing.” Coming from a scientific background, Michael looks at the construction of a knitting pattern and is a self-proclaimed technique junkie. “I’m always inventing some technique” he says sheepishly when speaking to his two-sided cables techniques.
