Hello there! My name is Andi, short for Andrea. I’m a Seattle-based knitting pattern designer. Untangling Knots is my line of independently-published patterns. They’re designed to have a retro look but feature modern techniques.

I’ve been knitting since 2004 and crocheting since 2006. I knit my first sweater in 2007, and I started designing in 2009. My patterns and articles have been published in Knitty, Pom Pom Quarterly, Knitscene, Twist Collective, and the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. My work has been featured on Make:CRAFT, on Craft Gawker, in Knit Now, in Let’s Knit, and in Let’s Get Crafting. I’m also a former contributor for Tuts+ and previously worked as the Associate Editor for Cake Central Magazine and Editor of Stranded Magazine.

You can chat about anything relating to my designs and blog in the Untangling Knots group on Ravelry, or send me an email at Andi@
