Kate is Knitty.com’s Managing Technical Editor, and a seasoned designer and teacher of all things knitterly. Her book ‘Custom Socks: Knit to Fit Your Feet’ was released summer 2015 by Interweave Press, to great acclaim.
Her latest book, “Pattern Writing for Knit Designers, is the industry’s first guide specifically written to help knit designers of all levels create easy-to-follow, high quality knitting patterns. It’s been called a “game-changer” and a “must-have” by designers and magazine editors.
She’s known for her attention to detail in her patterns and her classes, and she regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Interweave YarnFest and Vogue Knitting Live. Her work has appeared in many books and magazines.
Her followup to the Socks book, on Mittens and Gloves, comes out this fall.
Kate lives in Toronto with her husband and their adorable but sometimes challenging rescue dog Dexter.
