About the Designer:

Lauren Rad of A Been in the Bonnet describes her work as simple, classic knitwear designs, and I agree. A yummy collection of socks, gloves, hats, wraps, and other “small” knit patterns. What exemplifies A Been in the Bonnet is a lovely combination of texture and lacey stitch patterns that create work that is cozy and light at the same time.
