Charlotte Kaae

Knit Designer, author and teacher

Charlotte Kaaes colorful personality shines clearly through in her knitting. The exuberant and colorful style, with playful patterns stand out from the sober, Scandinavian fashion image. Her inspiration comes from southern colors, Japanese manga art, future trends, as well as Goethe and Itten’s theory of color.

Charlotte has knitted since she was five years old, so she put it mildly, an experienced knitter. The lack of recipes that suited her own style, inspired Charlotte to start making her own designs. She loves to play with colors and do what many others do not dare. There is also room for the quieter knit design in Charlotte’s repertoire – but they always have a twist, so you know that it is a By Kaae creation.
