Hi, I’m Julie!
I’m a fashion designer living in Brooklyn, New York. I’ve worked in fashion for over a decade. My love of craft and DIY is what led me to pursue a career as a designer, and now I’m bringing my wealth of industry knowledge to my work in hand knitting.
I publish contemporary patterns for knitters who want to push the boundaries of their personal style.
I teach online classes to help yarn craft designers publish more accessible, size inclusive patterns.
I consult with brands and individuals on trends, creative, and technical design.
I edit patterns too.
Design: it should be fun. Fun to make and fun to wear. You should feel comfortable and free, and the best you’ve ever felt. Making is an expression of love and courage. You not only made something beautiful, you made it with intention. Making helps us learn about ourselves, eachother, and the world around us. It’s a way to investigate and engage with something bigger. It’s a way to connect.
My making is possible because of all the input I get from the media I consume, and the other hobbies I engage with. I’m not here to prescribe Just What You Need, or to dictate what is in-or-out of fashion. I’m here to give you options. To surprise and delight you with things that do the same for me.
