Amanda Bjoerge

I have recently given birth to our first son, Elias and now spend most of my time with him. Therefore I am not as quick to respond with pattern inquiries, but try to check weekly. To reach me quicker please use bjoergeknits@gmail.com

I am an American living in Norway. I learned to both knit and crochet when I was young, but never made anything more than basic scarves before moving to Norway in 2007. I saw people walking around town with these beautiful mittens called Selbuvotter and was inspired to make a pair of my own. From there I jumped into the world of knitting and never looked back.

I enjoy working with cables, lace and stranded projects. Apart from knitting, I have a Master’s degree in Mathematics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and enjoy running and reading when I am not knitting.

I am also a part of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program and you can see my patterns for sale here.
