I believe knitting sweaters can change the world.
Making our own clothes is an exercise in power. We can abandon disposable fast fashion. We honor our unique bodies and heal generations of wounds. We participate in a movement - one that values the work of women & elevates a global community of makers.
I write knitting patterns, present & teach, and offer consulting & grading for both knitters and designers. But that's just the nuts and bolts. What I really do is help knitters transform their practice.
I teach technical skills, connect knitters to meaningful tools and resources, and host spirited conversations about the world that fiber arts can create.
With skill, intention, and working one stitch at a time, knitters are absolutely going to create a more deliberate, equitable, thoughtful world. And we're going to look damn good doing it.
Care to join us?

Beauty is a feeling.
My name is Elizabeth, I create size-inclusive knitting patterns to bring out your own magical beauty. I believe what makes you different makes you special, and my designs celebrate individuality.
Before beginning my work as a knitwear designer in 2020, I was a full time yoga teacher, tarot card reader, and jewelry designer with yoga jewelry in studios across the country. After closing my jewelry brand during the coronavirus pandemic, I finally found more space for my first love, knitting. I began designing my own garments, and organically grew to create size-inclusive knitting patterns. I strive to offer the highest quality of patterns and I’m committed to perpetual growth as a designer.
My patterns are named for women who have lived as outsiders throughout history, many of whom were persecuted as witches. My work is meant to honor these women, and anyone who goes against the grain to live their own truth.
I design for all of the witches out there who know that they are both sexy and strong and want handmade clothes that reflect that. You deserve to look amazing while you disrupt the patriarchy.
