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 also love to design lace cowls and am currently enamored with textured lace stitches in particular. I enjoy teaching knitting and crocheting as well, and am proud to be one of the lucky teachers at the fabulous fibre space yarn shop in Alexandria.

All patterns are test knitted by my wonderful band of merry testers/knitting detectives and professionally tech edited for your knitting pleasure. Please don’t hesitate to contact me here if you have any questions about the patterns. I am always happy to help.

I would like to extend an invitation for all lace lovers to join my Dee O’Keefe Designs group. We are a casual and friendly group of fellow lace fanatics. Please stop by if you have questions about any of my patterns or just to say hi and chat a bit.

P.S. A big shout out to my friends at Knitting Paradise for their support and encouragement when I starting designing a few years back.
