Penny Straker

Penny Straker Patterns are the benchmark of hand knitting patterns. Knitter-friendly, with clean graphics, including illustrations of techniques, they are written in a straightforward style. They take the knitter one step at a time through each section of a garment and are complete and accurate.

They are the original generic patterns, written for weights of yarn, not specific brand names. With a Penny Straker pattern any appropriate yarn that tests to required gauge can be used in the project.

A prototype is knit from an idea and a rough sketch. The math is calculated for the size range of the design and then rough drafts are written, proofread and re-written. Other sizes are then test knit to check the fit and tailoring of each size and the wording of the directions. Only then is the final draft ready to be published.

Knitters have come to trust in our patterns because of the extra time and care given to each design.
