Katherine Vaughan

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Ravelry or in a variety of print and online magazines and books.

LYSes interested in my patterns - nearly all of them are available from Stitch Sprouts. I also participate in the Ravelry In-Store Sales Program. If you are a LYSO interested in previewing a copy of one of my patterns please contact me with your business address and I’ll be happy to arrange for you to receive a digital sample.

Yarnies interested in partnering for pattern support: I happily work with yarn companies big and small. In the last few months I’ve done patterns with Malabrigo, Baah, and Anzula, and have designs in the works for these as well as KnitCircus and Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, among others. Please feel free to contact me with your ideas or to ask about mine!

I’m a certified knitting teacher, accomplished technical editor for knitting patterns, and in my daily life am an academic science librarian.
