Barbara Benson

My work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. I tend to explore slightly unorthodox elements in knitting; be it shaping, color combinations or unusual themes.

I have a book coming out in March of 2017, it is available for pre-order right now on Amazon Mosaic & Lace Knits

Keeping things fun is important but I also make sure that the fun doesn’t get in the way of the knitter ending up with a finished object that they love.

Sign up for my newsletter to receive news from my needles on the first Thursday of every month.

You can also catch up with me on my YouTube channel Watch Barbara Knit where I post knitting videos weekly.

I was interviewed on the blog “How to become a Professional Knitter”, if you would like to know more about my thought processes check it out here.

Printed patterns are available to wholesale customers through my distributor Stitch Sprouts. If you have a LYS, please check them out!

If you like my designs and would like to chat with like-minded individuals (or me) (or if you are just feeling chatty) please feel free to drop by the Barbara Benson Designs group.

If you are considering purchasing one of my patterns, you can see a sample of what the pattern will look like below. All of my patterns are fully tested and edited. If you find any problems or need any assistance, please do not hesitate to send me a message.
