When i started designing knitting patterns, I wanted them to have unique names.


Names different than “easy knitted beanie” or “textured dishcloth”.


I researched how other designers were naming their patterns.  People’s names, especially girl names seem to be the most popular choice.


After brainstorming and rejecting quite a few ideas, I finally decided to name Knit So Easy patterns after where I live.

North Carolina is one of the original thirteen colonies so has been around for a long time.  Many of the names came from local Indian tribes and from the array of settlers, who came here.

Talk about some unique names!


I began naming Knit So Easy patterns after places in Caldwell County, where I was born, but soon had to add Catawba County, where I now live.

Is is my goal to design so many patterns for you that I have to branch out to the whole state!
