About Julia

Hi! I’m Julia (she / her) and I’m a knit and crochet pattern designer, tech editor and illustrator. I love sharing what I have learned in my 10+ years of experience in the yarn industry, providing others with the tools to create in their own style, voice and aesthetic.
As a former in-house designer for a yarn company, I developed the skills to design for knitters and crocheters of all experience levels, preferring techniques that are smart not hard, enjoyable to make and rewarding to complete. My graphic design and illustration education combined with my knit-knowledge has afforded me the unique ability to create knit and crochet Illustrations and charts with insider-expertise. I love detail and consistency and I tap that obsession into whipping patterns into shape as a tech editor. Whether it’s designing a knitting pattern, creating a crochet chart or editing the work of others, I desire to inspire! I live in Toronto with my partner, two daughters and a whole lot of yarn.
