About the Author
Bärbel Salet has been knitting since she was 12 years old and has always been fascinated by knitting with many colours and harmonious colour gradients. Since 2012, she has regularly given workshops on how to plan and knit large, patterned triangular shawls. In her studio (which is also the warehouse for her online shop) you can now find 365 different shades in wool.
"Today I can no longer say exactly when I started knitting.
There was a lot of knitting in our family and I learned the basic shapes from my mother. It all started at the age of 12, when I knitted hats for a Christmas bazaar. Even then, I was fascinated by knitting with many colours and without knowing it, I knitted my first Fair Isle patterns. When I was at school, we were allowed to knit in class. The teachers appreciated the fact that we were quiet and concentrated and could follow the lessons.
The meditative calm that comes from knitting always gave me a balance to my later professional life.“
