Kristen Rengren

I’m a knitwear designer and vintage clothing fiend based in Chicago, Illinois. My book Vintage Baby Knits, published by Stewart, Tabori and Chang, features over 40 vintage patterns from the 1920s to the 1950s, which I’ve updated for modern use.

I also design original patterns with a vintage twist. My original work can be found here on Ravelry as well as in designs featured by Twist Collective, Vogue Knitting magazine, Interweave magazine, and in many books and other projects.

I am currently updating my Ravelry store, website, and blog - stay tuned! It may be happening at a rather glacial pace, but it is indeed happening.
