Shanel Wu

I’m a grad student in Colorado with too many interests and not enough time! When I was a new knitter, I was always modifying patterns and improvising designs. Naturally, when I figured out how to create charts and edit PDF’s, I fell into designing.

As a designer, I am intrigued by unique shapes, creating my own stitches, and unusual constructions. In my patterns, I aim to give YOU the creative power to choose color combinations that bring out your personality, as well as the ability to adapt the FO to your preferences. I hope that my designs will inspire your craft!

All of my patterns are available on a pay what works pricing scale. Use the following coupon codes to adjust your purchase total to an amount that is accessible to you.

PIPER1 - 10% off

PIPER2 - 20% off

PIPER3 - 30% off

Free copies (available on a limited basis) supported by donations via Ko-Fi and Patreon

I am personally always looking to improve myself as a designer and overall human being. My sliding scale prices are part of an effort to make my patterns accessible to more crafters, as well as to use my relative financial privilege to redistribute resources. I’m also working towards my patterns being gender-neutral, size-inclusive, and universally formatted to include disabled and neurodiverse people.

You can find me on the internet in many places! However, I’m not the greatest at keeping these updated (besides Instagram).
