Shannon Okey

New in 2017: check out my pattern-a-week Patreon project!

I’m a designer, and the author, co-author or editor of more than a dozen books, including The Knitgrrl Guide to Professional Knitwear Design, and the founder of both knit publishing company Cooperative Press and of Knit Edge magazine.

I am also the former editor of UK-based Yarn Forward magazine, previously wrote columns for knit.1 and Knitting Today! magazines, and have contributed to many others.

I own Knitgrrl Studio, founded the annual NaKniSweMo KAL, and co-founded Felt School (both of which have Ravelry groups).

I also teach online classes, including the bestselling Designer 101, a kind of bootcamp for knit designers!** (Note that we’re switching to a new platform for this in 2017, more information will be coming soon).

And finally, I sell my patterns on Ravelry, too. Thanks for all your emails, comments and the lovely work you’ve done with my designs!
