Edie Kasten, the creator of very pretty hand knits, enjoys making pretty, one-of-a-kind infant, baby and toddler dresses as well as scarves, purses and other accessories for girls, teens and women. Everything is hand-knit by Edie herself.
As an award-winning journalist, Edie has been in love with words since childhood. However, even before that came a love of color, texture and design. What fascinates her most is creating – from the excitement of first experiencing an idea to its initial development and final completion. This knit wear designer loves pretty things… from flowers and waterfronts to the sheen of pearls. She is also a fan of clean lines, simplicity and and natural beauty.

Edie is an adult who still loves to color and incorporates perfectly matched colors in her process of creating… from gathering ideas to designing to knitting and even creating special bags to hold the knits. She offers a complete package ready for gift giving… even when the gift is for you.
The only thing better than creating something is knowing that it gives joy to someone else. Each very pretty hand knit creation is a work of art made especially for you. If something you like is no longer available, Edie will work with you to recreate the elements you love.
