Ailbíona McLochlainn

I am a knitter, designer, and recovering academic, based in County Donegal, Ireland. I learned to knit at a young age in the improvisational folk tradition. Much later in life I was introduced to the world of written patterns and ravelry, and I am still reeling! I began publishing patterns in 2017. A friendly warning, that my early patterns (pre-2018) might be a little different to what you are used to. I am now re-working them to bring them in line with the more standard pattern-writing format of today’s knitting culture :) If you’ve purchased an early pattern, you will automatically receive an update.
