Welcome!
Hi friends!! My name is Noriko, and I am the knitwear and crochet designer behind Norichan Knits!

I've been knitting, crocheting, and spinning for over fifteen years. I began professionally designing at the end of 2014; my designs can be seen in collections with Quince and Co, KnitPicks, and Berroco, and have been featured in Knitscene, Knit.Wear, and Stranded Magazine. While the majority of my fiber endeavors involve knitting, I do love to crochet, as well, and look forward to expanding my crochet pattern repertoire.

My designs are inspired by the people and world around me. I love to travel, and have lived all over the world including California, Oregon, China, Japan, Georgia, Texas, and Washington (in that order). My passion for color can be seen throughout my patterns!

Tier details
Depending on the level of your subscription, you will be getting:
  • Patreon exclusives including, but not limited to: sneak peeks at future designs, Patreon-only blog posts, glimpses at designing, etc.
  • Early access and notification of sale events.  I only run sales a few times a year, and you will be getting first access to them!
  • Access to "This is How I" demos. "This is How I" demos are short videos that demonstrate the way that I like to do a particular skill. Examples include: a knit stitch, pick up stitches, work my selvedge stitches, etc. These are NOT tutorial videos, they are just fun videos showing how this knitter (and sometimes crocheter) works a skill. There are lots of ways to knit, and it's a lot of fun to watch other people do these skills!!
  • Access to vote on Patreon-exclusive polls. Help me choose colors, yarn brands, garment types, etc!
  • Once a year, I'll run a Patreon-exclusive sale for you!
  • A code that allows one free, self-published Norichan Knits pattern a month (the code will be valid for one month).
  • An appointment for a color consultation with me, where I help you choose colors for your next project, up to once monthly (up to 50min via email, Skype, or similar).

Why Patreon?
Your monthly contributions will be going towards:
  • Offsetting fees from Paypal and Ravelry
  • Allowing me to hire the best tech editors to create clear and error-free patterns for you
  • High quality photography
  • Various software charges
  • Printing costs
Long Term Goals
  • Being able to offer test knitters more than my love and thanks
  • Being able to hire a sample knitter, which will dramatically speed up my ability to write patterns
  • Being able to hire models of varying sizes to better demo my patterns

Goals
22 of 35 patrons
When I reach this goal, I'll be able to afford offering test knitters something in payment for their work!  I love my test knitters, and I know many of them would continue testing for me for free, but I'd much rather be able to send them, at bare minimum, a skein of yarn in token of my appreciation, as well as my thanks!  <3
