Susanne Sommer is a passionate knitter and knitwear designer from Austria.
She loves combining colors and textures with unusual construction methods to create colorful, practical and fun knitwear.
Brioche, short-rows and i-cords are some of her favorite techniques and she thinks that no hand-knit wardrobe is complete without knit jewelry.

Apart from knitting, Susanne interested in the whole process from sheep or plant to the finished object – spinning and (natural) dyeing included.
Other interests include graphic design, cooking and baking. Susanne is vegan (apart from the wool she knits with of course) and loves to try out new recipes and restaurants – usually with her sister Sabine.
Susanne tries to live an environmentally conscious life in the Austrian countryside, forever trying to reduce her footprint and working towards a more sustainable future. Being surrounded by nature and having lots of space to breath and let creativity run freely is very important to her, and even though she enjoys trips to bustling cities with more eclectic cultural offerings – and especially when combined with a visit to a knitting festival – she loves coming home to her pets and family and her little knitting studio.
