Welcome to Thread and Circuses carnival of knitting patterns! Step this way to find reversible knitting projects that will never be wrong-side-out! Double your fun with two accessories in one! Read on to find out a bit about me, if you dare…

I live on Mi’kma’ki , the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. I am a bellydancing, leatherworking, fire eating, costume sewing, RMT, coffee addicted knitting designer. Knitting designs run rampaging through my head faster than I can knit them.

Friends, I am so excited that you have come here to knit my patterns! Don’t be intimidated by the ones that look hard; I’ve learned from my time as a knitting teacher is that if no one tells you that something is ‘difficult’ or ‘advanced’, you might think it’s easy. Whenever I did not classify things by difficulty, I’d have beginner knitters swatching lace by their second class. So if you like the way a design looks, try it! And don’t forget to take photos and share your finished work with me. In fact, take a selfie wearing something you knit that I designed and post it on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #ThreadAndCircusesInTheWild and I’ll add it to my website!

If ever you have any trouble with one of my patterns, please do not hesitate to ask me for help or clarification! Or join my pattern support group: Thread and Circuses Pattern Support.

You may also want to join my ‘Backstage Pass Club’ to get exclusive offers, coupons, news, and early access to new patterns! Passholders will be invited to the ‘Green Room’ (okay, that’s just fancy-talk for emails) featuring early access to my newest patterns when I release them, and special members-only discounts during early access. There may be flash-sales! And as a thank-you, new Passholders will receive a free pdf pattern for Inbetweener, a reversible knit hat. You’ll find the download information in your email after you’ve completed confirmation of membership. My website uses Ravelry’s shopping cart, so anything you purchase from my site will also be saved in your Ravelry library!

If you are a LYS, ask me about my wholesale pattern prices. If you are a yarn dyer or spinner and you would like to collaborate, let’s talk! If you are a designer of one of the patterns in my wish list, and you’d like one of my patterns to knit for yourself, I love trades!
