Stephannie Tallent

I strive to create clever, elegant patterns that keep your attention & interest as a knitter.

I’m inspired by a variety of things: places I’ve been, California natural history, the Arts & Crafts movement, Art Deco and Art Nouveau motifs, interesting stitch patterns from around the world, and of course, the yarn and fiber itself.

I love trying new techniques — and old techniques in new ways. Cables, twisted stitches, lace, colorwork, braids…

Think old techniques in modern styles.

On the non-knitting front, I’m a small animal relief veterinarian in Southern California. I’m married to Dave, a high school physics teacher. No kids except for the four footed: Rigel, an English Cocker spaniel, and two Tonkinese cats, Meggie and Cali.
