I am a knitwear designer and teacher with a full time job and a family. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, cross stitch, etc. from my mother as a child. I think I jumped from craft to craft more often than I would like to admit!
Knitting has become my main focus. I love to create new designs, and to figure out new ways of doing things. I really want my designs to be easy to wear, AND well fitting and flattering. There is no need to take all the time to make something if it is not going to be worn!
Although I love to create a well fitting, good looking cardigan or pullover, I also really like to crank out accessories. There is nothing like the feeling of getting a project, or a new pattern done!
I self publish. Those are the designs that you see here on Craftsy. I also design for yarn companies and knitting publications on a regular basis.
I make LOTS of hats, and right now, this is my favorite! I like the deep color, I like the cables that travel around rather than up, and I love the yarn, Knit Picks City Tweed.
I used the yarn doubled (I held 2 strands together) throughout the hat.
Since it is worked flat as a band around the head, it is really easy to get the fit just right. You can stop a little early or work a few more rows to get a custom fit!
