Andrea Wong
At the age of seven, growing up in Brazil, Andrea Wong learned a fast and efficient way of knitting which had no name. She dubbed it Portuguese knitting. Now, Andrea lives in the United States and travels all over to teach Portuguese knitting at a variety of events. She's been teaching it for more than 12 years! When Andrea isn't teaching, she loves to design. That's how her business, Andrea Wong Knits, was born. You can see patterns from Andrea on her company's website or in a variety of popular knitting magazines.
