Varian Brandon

Varian Brandon started knitting at age eight.  A trip to the islands of Great Britain rekindled a love of color and created an interest in the love of Fair Isle design and construction.  She is currently designing stranded  colorwork patterns for several yarn companies, as well as her own website.  Additionally, her designs have been published in several national and international magazines including “Yarnwise”, “Ply”, and “Interweave Knits”.   Currently living in Saluda, North Carolina, Varian has been teaching stranded colorwork and related knitting techniques, both virtually and in person, at national and regional fiber festivals and retreats, in local yarn shops, and for the past 17 years at the Kanuga Knitting and Quilting Retreat.  Online she can be found at www.brandonknittingdesigns.com , on Ravelry at varianbrandon and on her Youtube channel at Varian Brandon
