ABOUT THE DESIGNER: KELLY G
In 2001 Kelly taught herself to knit by creating a truly hideous scarf full of dropped stitches and unintentional yarn overs. Eternally stubborn and not to be dissuaded, she worked at it tirelessly until she had the fundamentals down, and never looked back. In 2014 she decided the next great thing for her to master was designing her own patterns, and despite many bumps in the road, her stubbornness again persevered, and her first pattern was released in 2015. To this day, Kelly still has that hideous first scarf she knit.
