The reason yarn-whisperer Mandy Kordal is so good at what she does? She’s perfectly happy letting the textiles speak for themselves. “I don’t sketch before I have a yarn. I’ll get the yarn in, knit a bunch of swatches, combine them together—it’s once I have those things in front of me that I get a clear idea of what the garments are going to look like,” she explains of her process.
