About

Hi everyone! I'm Liz and I design knitting patterns, mostly for accessories - shawls, cowls, fingerless mitts and socks! I started designing back in 2012 as a hobby, but since having kids, it's become a way for me to contribute towards support my family, while still looking after my children.

I love to design - I love the way knitting flows and you how can influence the movement with increases and decreases. The logic of it appeals to my engineering side while the creativity appeals to my artistic side and the knitting process is hugely relaxing and really helps me handle anxiety.

I want to give you the same joy I feel when knitting with the same beautiful results! I design patterns that are occasionally challenging but mostly relaxing with elements like lace or cables to keep it interesting. I also produce photo tutorials to go alongside my patterns if they include techniques that are unusual.

Why Patreon?

I want to show you more of what I'm doing as it happens - my supporters will get to see what I'm working on as it happens with weekly updates here on Patreon! You'll get to see what I'm working on a couple of months before it appears on Instagram or Facebook. I'll share new designs, sketches, swatches, the successes and failures of knit design and most of all I want to build a community so I can design more of the patterns that you want to knit!

Higher tiers will get to choose new tutorials and get input into designs (choices between two sketches, or lace vs cables or between socks or mitts). There's an additional option to get a pattern of your choice each month.

My Goals

As a designer, my income fluctuates from month to month depending on sales and successful pattern releases. Your support will help me gain a more predictable income every month - knowing my monthly outgoings are covered every month will give me the stability I need to make choices about my business that align with my ethics. I will be able to give more support to BIPOC causes and financial support for those who struggle to buy patterns. A big goal for me would be to also provide patterns that are accessible for screen readers so that my patterns are accessible for all. My ultimate goal is to be able to provide regular financial support for my family.
Goals
$11.74 of $13.43 per month
This covers the cost of Photoshop every month - I use it to edit my photos for patterns, my website and social media!
