Jenny Withrow

I am a PhD student in Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, but when I’m not running regressions I am knitting. Knitting has been an important creative outlet for me since I was in high school. For the longest time I was the only knitter in my family and friend group. My blog, wiseknits.com, has been active for almost 10 years and has been a way for me to connect with other knitters farther away.

I started wiseknits.com as a place for me to post the free patterns I came up with for the types of knits I wanted to wear. My goal was always to make these patterns easy and accessible for those who were just starting out.

I’ve recently started to publish patterns for sale. Sometimes, they are a bit more complicated than my free ones, but my goal is to create patterns that have clear instructions, are easy to follow, and in general are low-stress to knit, even if you are learning a technique for the first time.
