Kat Archer


I lived and worked around the country, until happily settling in Portland, OR in 2009. My love of knitting blossomed back in 1998, adding to an ever-growing list of creative pursuits. A studio art major in college, I focused on print making, and my perpetual artistic mantra has been: beauty is found in simplicity. Today I use my art training to dream up new patterns with rich texture and visual impact.

My designs have been published in Twist Collective, the Malabrigo Freelance Pattern Project, the Rose City Yarn Crawl pattern collection, the Twisted Yarn Shop pattern line, and in collaboration with Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Knitted Wit, and Hazel Knits.
