About Me

Hello, and welcome! I'm Alexis, "Chief Sheep" here at cold comfort knits. I'm also a dedicated knitwear designer and maker, best known for my passion for natural fibres.


My original patterns have been featured in Ravelry’s Community Eye Candy, and on the Hot Right Now Top 20. I've also had the pleasure of collaborating on some very special bespoke designs with yarn companies such as The FIbre Co., Shibui Knits, The Loving Path, and Leo & Roxy Yarn Co.


When I'm not writing patterns, you can find me knitting at my local cafe, working as a knitting instructor at my local hospital, or carousing with my fellow yarnies at my LYS. ​My life revolves around string, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
