Kristen TenDyke

Kristen TenDyke is a knit and crochet designer from Maine. She loves playing with yarn and has published designs in Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet, Vogue Knitting, Knit Simple, Twist Collective and Knitty.com. She’s also worked with various yarn companies such as Quince & Co., O-Wool, Blue Sky Alpacas, Berroco and Classic Elite Yarns.

In 2010 Kristen began a growing collection of designs that are dedicated to supporting the use and production of eco-friendly yarns. Her Caterpillar Knits designs use organic, fair trade, low carbon footprint, recycled, animal friendly or vegan yarns that use low impact, natural dyes, or none at all.

Her first book (Finish-Free Knits) is now available from Interweave Press.

Her self-published Knitting Maine booklet will be available in October, 2013.
