Ponies - by Mandy McIntosh
Ponies is the second design by Mandy McIntosh for J&S' New Directions collection. Vintage lines, feminine yet funky. This pattern combines colourful and fun intarsia work with the main body section done in st-st in natural undyed Shetland Supreme jumper weight.
Coming from a family of Irish knitters, Mandy soon picked up hand-knitting, and began to fuse her new hobby with her love of punk music- it didn't take long before she started designing her own garments- using traditional methods but with her own edgy colour combinations and styles.
After studying for a degree in knitwear design then working as a knitwear designer at KENZO in Paris for two years, Mandy returned to Scotland and studied for an MA in design at Glasgow School of Art.
Each of Mandy's contributions to the J&S "New Directions Pattern Collection" demonstrates the versatility and adaptability of Shetland wool, through new perspectives and colour palettes- aimed toward a new generation of fibre artists and hand knitters.
