Ivy & Autumn has been many things to me over the past few years, but I've finally found a place to call home, so to speak - with knitwear design. I've always enjoyed creating things with my own two hands, and started knitting and crocheting around 2012 as a fun new hobby and creative outlet. While it's been on and off since then, I have recently rediscovered my love for this maker life and the amazing community, and I'm so thankful for that. I hope to bring a little bit of inspiration and positivity to others.
I love the quote 'the only thing that is constant is change', and I find the truth in that for myself more each day. I feel most inspired by the changing seasons, the colors, textures, smells, sounds...and as I get older, I appreciate more and more that I live in a place where we (typically) get to experience all four seasons. Inspiration is everywhere and in anything when our eyes and minds are open to it, and there's always something new to be learned.
Everything you see in the shop has been designed and handmade by me with so much love. When you purchase a pattern from Ivy & Autumn, you help this small business of mine grow, and I am eternally grateful. So thank you. You're the bee's knees. I hope you find something you adore!
