About Me

Thanks for stopping by! I’m Lauren Rad. I design knitwear patterns when I’m not teaching high schoolers about the American legal system. Most mornings, you can find me curled up in my pink wingback chair with a hot mug of tea and some handknit socks on my always-cold feet.

My knitting patterns are easily memorized and super soothing, so you can take them anywhere or work on them while doing other things. That’s because, for me, knitting is a mental health tool. I use it as a mindfulness exercise and as a fidget spinner, depending on what I need, and having to keep stopping to check the pattern doesn’t work well for either of those purposes.

I know I’m not the only one who does this, so I write my patterns for you: the stressed knitter who needs to relax and who finds meditation helpful; the overwhelmed knitter who has trouble focusing or sitting still in long meetings; the fidgety knitter who wants to watch a movie but also wants to keep working on something. You’re my people. I’m one of you.
