Melissa Leapman

Melissa Leapman

With over 1000 designs currently in print, Melissa Leapman is one of the most prolific American designers at work today.

Melissa is the author of several bestselling knitting and crocheting books. Recent titles are Cables Untangled, Continuous Cables, Color Knitting the Easy Way, Mastering Color Knitting, and Stashbuster Knits.

One recent book is Knitting the Perfect Fit, published by Random House/Potter Craft in August 2012. It is a designer’s exploration of how to use fully-fashioned shaping to create figure flattering sweaters.

The Knit Stitch Pattern Handbook was released in late 2013 and is a dictionary of Melissa’s favorite stitch patterns.

As a freelance designer, she’s worked with leading ready-to-wear manufacturers and design houses in NYC. In addition, most American yarn companies commission Melissa to create designs to promote their new and existing yarns each season.

She’s been a featured guest on numerous television shows, is a popular guest blogger, and is the host of several Leisure Arts knitting and crocheting DVD’s. Nationally, her workshops are popular with crafters of all levels.

Meet her in person in the Melissa Leapman Rocks group here in Ravelry, a group started by some of her fans.
