Merethe Naas

Hi, my name is Merethe and I’m the Creator of NAASKNITS knitwear design.

Like a lot of creatives, I am chronically ill…Fibromyalgia and Sjogren’s Syndrome. Living with a chronic illness can cause depression and feelings of guilt and uselessness. It was important for me to find something that would make me feel “whole” again. I used to work in a corporate job as an engineer until chronic illnesses made it impossible. Knitting and designing became my therapy.

My desire is to create designs that will provide you comfort and healing, while you engage in a pleasurable knitting experience. I want you to enjoy the journey, while you are knitting my patterns, from the cast on to the finished object. Relax and appreciate the process, feel the yarn and the meditative movements, relish in the beauty you are creating while your stress slips away. To help make your experience as enjoyable as possible, all of my patterns are professionally tech edited and test knitted.

Patterns are available in both English and Norwegian. And some of them in German and Franch.

So, let’s slow down, get our coffee, and knit some beautiful things with our hands.
