Chrissy Gardiner

Howdy! I am a knitwear designer and obsessive sock knitter (needless to say, most of my published patterns are for socks…). I’ve had patterns published in most of the major knitting mags, including Knitter’s, Creative Knitting, Interweave Knits, Cast-On and Knitscene, and have contributed to several knitting books. I’ve also designed stuff for Blue Moon Fiber Arts & Classic Elite along with socks for a bunch of indie sock clubs.

I have a line of indie patterns, available through Ravelry (all of my self-published patterns are available through the Ravelry LYS sales program as well). I’ve also published two books, Toe-Up! Patterns and Worksheets to Whip Your Sock Knitting Into Shape, and Indie Socks: Patterns and Dyer Profiles Featuring Hand-Dyed Yarns.

All patterns in the Gardiner Yarn Works line have been tested by paid test knitters and reviewed by two professional tech editors. Errata is posted on our website, including a downloadable correction sheet that you can paste into your original pattern. We are always happy to answer any questions or concerns either by e-mail to support@gardineryarnworks.com or via PM.

FYI for crafters We are happy to have individual crafters make an unlimited number of items from Gardiner Yarn Works patterns for charity and/or profit (US copyright law does not restrict your right to do so, and we absolutely love it). We also encourage the use of our patterns for classes as long as each user of the pattern purchases their own copy. Please PM me (chrissyg) if you have any questions about using our patterns. Thanks! :)
