Hello there, knitting explorer! My name is Amanda and I create straightforward patterns for knitters to confidently create projects they are proud to make and show off.
I do that by designing knitter-friendly patterns that work for a variety of knitting styles. With fully written and charted instructions, linked video tutorials in pattern, stitch count breakdowns by row and stitch marker section, and checkboxes to help keep track of rows and repeats, I’ve taken my skills from working in customer service and user experience and applied them to the knitting industry.
I believe your knitting time is valuable and I want all of your knitting experiences to be enjoyable and confidence-building.
