Paula Niskasaari

I’m a sock knitting addict, an engineer, an entrepreneur, a shoemaker and a mom of two from Finland.

As a designer, my aim is to create pieces of knitwear and write patterns that are – more than anything – knittable. It doesn’t mean that they are necessarily super quick or easy, but the WIP is always easy to carry around in your bag (so you can knit when your child is in a dance class), the pattern is quite often easy to memorize (because your head is exploding with everything you must remember anyways), and the item is possible to finish in a reasonable time, even if a lot of your time goes to looking for a lost mitt and repairing the toy bunny that has lost one ear.

My Instagram account (in Finnish) is @neulovilla
