Michèle Rose Orne
Michèle Rose Orne has designed hundreds of patterns during her wide-ranging career—even, in one exotic moment, crazy Christmas sweaters. Her role as partner and creative director at Swans Island means she oversees both an all-natural, hand-dyed yarn company and an exquisite handwoven blanket business. She combines passion and experience in her design work, which includes the book Inspired to Knit (2008). We covet Swans Island blankets, which can be found at swansislandcompany.com.
