We Love Design!
Knitspot owner and designer Anne Hanson, a life-long knitter with experience in the fashion and graphic design fields, enjoys an ongoing conversation with users, incorporating customer feedback into knitspot products wherever possible. Anne also teaches and writes about knitting, spinning, and designing in her “knit spot”, and lives in ohio with David, who loves wool, too.
Anne’s background as a patternmaker/draper, technical designer, and costumer in New York City’s garment district informs her work, providing a rich source of experience in garment construction and fit, as well as knowledge of a wide range of fibers and fabrics.
Our most important concern at Knitspot is to provide user-friendly instructions for beautiful handknit designs. We offer fun and interesting patterns of all types and ability levels. In most cases, our patterns feature both written and charted instructions, with detailed explanations of technique. Many are appropriate for use as teaching tools; please use our Contact Form to inquire about use of patterns in classes and workshops.
A very special and important aspect of our business is our program of recycling dollars back into the general fund for doing good in the world. Each month we send 10% of knitspot proceeds to an organization committed to world improvement. We focus on non-religious organizations which keep administrative costs to a minimum, in order that more dollars reach those most in need.
