My work focuses on creating detailed and beautiful accessory patterns. I love a small project because it means I can conceivably get it done within a month or two, instant gratification on a knitting timeline. Also, I despise weaving in ends. If I can get away with only one or two skeins of yarn then I have fewer ends to weave in.
I tend to explore slightly unorthodox elements in knitting; be it shaping, color combinations or unusual themes. I try to keep things fun but also make sure that the fun doesn’t get in the way of the knitter ending up with a finished object that they love.
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.
