Knit Equals Joy

I love to create designs that are fun to make – not too hard, but interesting and engaging. I try to include something a little different in each of my designs, whether it’s an unusual combination of stitches or a new way to look at color. As you might have guessed, I am passionate about color and love to scheme about the perfect color combinations. Every Fall, I host an annual Pumpkin-a-Long and release a new pumpkin design.

Rise Up Pattern

Here’s a sneak peek of my Rise Up pattern, the Garden Cowl. Here the cowl is worn doubled.

Ethereal Sweater

My knitting designs are created to explore the beauty in a yarn, a fiber, a color, a texture, or an idea.


The patterns are written to be clear and straightforward and to provide the information needed so that you can recreate the design in your own beautiful project.

Talk up your brand.

Every Fall, I host an annual Pumpkin-a-Long and release a new pumpkin design, mixing up styles and techniques.
