Shana S. Cohen
Registered Architect + Knitwear Designer
I am an architect with experience teaching technical and design studio courses in several higher education venues. I bring my experience of geometry and writing design syllabi to my pattern writing. My patterns are mostly modular designs, and mostly garter stitch! In pattern writing, I strive to make legible directions that allow the knitter to customize their own work in the process. I try to pay attention to maximizing yardage and adaptability of styling in my work. Throughout all of my endeavors, I love connecting with individuals, helping them to become the best version of themselves. I aim to write my patterns in a way to foster this creative expression in you, the knitter. I hope you have fun playing with color and style when working my patterns.
I am a recipient of a design fellowship in the Eat.Sleep.Knit Pattern Academy from July-December 2020.
