Shana S. Cohen

I am an architect with experience teaching technical and design studio courses in several higher education venues. I bring my experience of geometry and writing design syllabi to my pattern writing. My patterns are mostly modular designs, and mostly garter stitch! In pattern writing, I strive to make legible directions that allow the knitter to customize their own work in the process. I try to pay attention to maximizing yardage and adaptability of styling in my work. Throughout all of my endeavors, I love connecting with individuals, helping them to become the best version of themselves. I aim to write my patterns in a way to foster this creative expression in you, the knitter. I hope you have fun playing with color and style when working my patterns.

My best friend helped me with the photo shoot for this design. In this time of social distancing, I gave her an Air Hug instead of a physical one. She's wearing the cowl with the WS out, and it looks awesome.

Model is 5'-4" with 35" bust wearing Size 2, which fits very loosely! This styling shows the piece squarely on the shoulders with the stripes in the vertical direction. This styling creates a boxier fit and shorter "sleeves".
