Dee O'Keefe

I am a shawl designer who lives in Alexandria, VA, a few miles outside of Washington, DC. Sure, I’ve knit other things, but I am obsessively drawn to lace shawls and so decided why not just give in and “specialize.” Resistance is futile!

I love charts for knitting lace and want everyone else to love them too. So all my patterns have really big, pretty charts that are easy to read and use.

My patterns are test knitted by my wonderful band of merry testers/knitting detectives and tech edited for your knitting pleasure.

My new Design by Dee group is up and running! Please stop by if you have questions about any of my patterns or just to say hi and chat a bit.

I want to give a big shout out to the many lace enthusiasts at the Knitting Paradise Forum to thank them for their continued support and encouragement of my design efforts.

I hope you enjoy knitting my shawl designs! Please don’t hesitate to contact me here if you have any questions about the patterns. I am always happy to help.
