Lisa M. Barnes


I believe that crafting is an adventure. It should be fun, colorful, and creative – not frustrating. My goal with every pattern and class I create is to educate and empower the knitters and crocheters of the world to have the confidence to try new things and improve their skills. And in the process, we are creating a space for us to come together, to connect with each other, to share our humanity and build a community.

My patterns have been published by Universal Yarn and Kreinik Threads, and featured in Noro Knitting Magazine, Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street Collections, and Creative Knitting Magazine.

I am also a Craft Yarn Council Certified Teacher, and currently teach at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio and Outlet, local yarn shops, and events around the country.
