Knitty.com is an online, free source of knitting and crochet patterns launched in 2002. I think I found it about 2006ish. Pre-Ravelry times, it was where I learned there is more to knitting than novelty yarn, garter stitch scarves.
Over the years I’ve used many patterns from Knitty and gleaned much inspiration from others. It’s also a famed source for instructional articles and videos. I applaud Knitty’s giving budding designers a place to be found in this getting-more-full-each-day world of knit and crochet designers. Some who got their start there include Ysolda Teague, Stephen West, Stephanie Pearl McPhee and Stephanie Japel.
Knitty is aching financially. Today I visited their patreon fundraising site to contribute a set amount per issue release to help them out. This will help them update all that computer coding mumbo-jumbo I don’t really get but know is important and to help them earn a living. We all have causes we would march forward with but hey, one has to eat in order to march.
Please consider donating as well.
