About the Author

The Managing Technical Editor of Knitty.com, Kate’s book on Custom Socks is due out this summer from Interweave. Her first book, Beyond Knit & Purl was praised as the 21st century’s answer to "Knitting for Anarchists“, offering a thorough but beginner-friendly way to build your knitting skills and knowledge. Her latest book, Pattern Writing for Knit Designers, is the industry's first guide specifically written to help knit designers of all levels create easy-to-follow, high quality knitting patterns. It’s been called a "game-changer" and a “must-have” by designers and magazine editors. Known for her attention to detail in her patterns and classes, Kate regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Interweave KnitLab, Yarn Fest, and Vogue Knitting Live. Her work has appeared in many books and magazines.


"Everything a knitter needs to complete a project. An insider's view of pattern design, presented in a surprisingly readable package. There's an abundance of information here, and designers of all skill levels who are interested in improving the structure and presentation of their knitting patterns will gain much from Atherley's expertise." --Library Journal, Starred Review

"Kate provides everything you need to know to share the designs for your knitted creations. All steps are clearly laid out and broken down, and include writing basic patterns, schematics and charts for all types of design and all levels of knitter." --Let's Knit

"A good reference for any knitter who wants to better understand the language of patterns and the experienced designer looking to improve pattern-writing skills." --Yarn Market News
