As an avid, long-time knitter, I have been frustrated trying to quickly find quality patterns for new projects. There are hundreds of pattern magazines and books on my shelves, as well as individual patterns. I am fortunate to also have several fabulous local yarn shops nearby. All of these patterns, however, are just the tip of the iceberg and designers continue to excite us with more new patterns everyday! Searching for “that special pattern” had become an extraordinarily time-consuming and often exasperating part of knitting for me.
Before the big trend, my daughter asked me to knit her a poncho. When I asked what style she wanted, she responded, “You have so many pattern books and magazines, just look for one you think I’ll like.” Several hours later, after going through piles of patterns without much luck, I decided to try the Internet, fully expecting to find thousands of patterns. Alas, what I was looking for did not exist on any one site.
After almost 50 years of knitting and crocheting, I decided to create “that one site”, a place to find an easily searchable collection of fabulous patterns. I know that, as a knitter, shopping at The Knitting Vault will mean that searching for patterns will no longer be a chore, but rather a part of the joyful and creative knitting process.
I hope that you enjoy your shopping experience. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions about how we can improve the site. If you know of other designers whose work you enjoy but are not currently listed, click here to let them know about The Knitting Vault or email me and I will contact them directly.
Thanks and welcome to The Knitting Vault.
