About Me

Home of Vermont Fiber Designs and Basix Knitting patterns.

Like many knitters, I learned how to knit from my mother at an early age, then promptly forgot about it as life got in the way. I returned to it for a short time as a student in Paris when a friend convinced me to try it again. The third time was the charm—my mother retaught me while I was in grad school. I was tired of trying to find sweaters with long enough sleeves to fit my 6′ frame, so I decided I’d just make my own. I fell madly in love with knitting, and eventually slipped into designing for myself when I began reworking existing patterns with elements that I liked better. And, of course, adjusting the sleeve and body lengths.

In 2003, I decided to publish my own line of knitting patterns, and Vermont Fiber Designs was born. Under that name, I have designed a number of top-down patterns. The most popular of those designs is a top-down set-in-sleeve Stockinette stitch cardigan. The other top-down patterns are quite popular as well. 

When I saw how well those top-down patterns were received, I decided to create Basix, a separate line that would be dedicated to the design of only top-down set-in-sleeve patterns that are worked in Stockinette stitch. If you see a Basix pattern, you can be sure that it is 1) top-down, 2) set-in-sleeve, 3) worked in Stockinette stitch (except for the trim, of course), and 4) designed for sizes XXS to 6X or 7X.
