Mari Chiba

I started knitting while serving in Armenia with the Peace Corps. It was cold and lonely in the winter and knitting helped keep me sane!

My passion for knitting has continued to grow. I love clean lines, figure flattering silhouettes, and have a tendency for a bit of whimsy. My designs have been published in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Twist Collective, and Clotheshorse.

I now live in Raleigh, NC but I’ve also lived in Armenia, China, Japan, and grew up in Portland, OR.

I also have a Ravelry Group where you can hear news about new patterns and help me to test new patterns.
