My new book Knitting Short Rows: Techniques for Great Shapes and Angles Knitting Short Rows book

is now available from Amazon – thank you for supporting my book!



I write and organize my pattern pdfs carefully, with the goal of providing clear, accurate and helpful instructions; as always, patterns are arranged so that written instructions and charts may be printed separately from photos and ancillary information. All patterns are professionally tech edited, and include photographs; helpful sidebar notes and links to tutorials are also included where appropriate.
