Sea Turtle Stack Toy Pattern Now on Knitty!
I’m so excited that my first published pattern was in the (web)pages of Knitty magazine! Knitty was my introduction to high quality free patterns when I was broke college student.
Back in the day before GPS was on everyone’s phones, I would Google all of the yarn stores I could reach by bus and print out the directions. Once I learned how to get to Joann’s Fabrics and Michaels, I would go every couple of weeks to pick up items for my new projects. When I didn’t have the time to make it out there, I would comb the pages of Knitty for things that I could make with my existing supplies.
Knitty had the first few high quality toy patterns that I found. Ten years ago there wasn’t a MochiMochiLand or a Rebecca Danger. There were the five things in Knitty (including Woodins!) and Debbie Bliss. Don’t get me wrong; I’m glad to have had those because they launched my own journey into knitting stuffed animals. But I’m also glad to see there’s a much larger pool to pick from today. And I’m glad I get to add my designs to it.

Until next time, happy knitting!
