Clare Lakewood

I am a West Coast to West Coast transplant. Born and raised on the West Coast of Australia, I relocated to San Francisco in late 2013, and now enjoy living in a city where every season is handknit season. I favour simple shapes and bold surface design, and am particularly interested in natural coloured and breed-specific wool and yarn. I spin as well as knit, though not efficiently enough for it to be particularly useful.

I tend toward concise - but clear - pattern-writing. All my patterns are tech-edited and include schematics. I include both charts and full written instructions where appropriate.

If you like what I’m up to, click that ‘add to faves’ button above my ravatar on the right to keep up to date with new releases.

Or, follow me on Instagram (@lakewoodknits) for swatches, sneak peaks, new releases, tips and tricks, and, ah, almost certainly a few pics of my dog.

This isn’t just a one-way street - I LOVE to see pictures of the projects you’ve made from my patterns. If you’re posting on instagram, tag me @lakewoodknits, or use the hashtag #lakewoodknits, so I know what you’re up to!
