Rebecca McKenzie is the knitwear designer behind the Raging Purlwind brand. Finding that her body had changed drastically after giving birth to her daughter the brand grew out of Rebecca’s desire to create clothes that would fit her post-baby body rather than trying to make her body fit into her clothes. She has a whimsical style and enjoys designing colorful, vintage-inspired knitwear pieces that she hopes will become staples in an everyday wardrobe.
Each Raging Purlwind design is created with a story in mind. Rebecca carefully chooses every stitch to convey different elements of that story and this translates into a crafting experience that is both relaxing and fun for those who choose to knit them.
You can find her patterns on Ravelry. Rebecca’s user name is: ragingpurlwind and you can follow her on Instagram as ragingpurlwind.
