feedback from happy knitters

(all feedback quotes were written by knitters on their own ravelry project page notes)

Lee is a maker of things, doer of stuff! Designer of modern and innovative knitting patterns, specializing in any-gauge accessories and modular construction techniques.

2020 update: Lee rarely designs new knitting patterns nowadays, as her career has shifted to graphic design (she designs all the books for Knit Picks now!), but her knitting patterns all still exist, now with half of all sales being donated!

To learn where donations are going this month, see Lee's ravelry designer page or pinned tweet or instagram "donations" story highlight. Here is a partial list of where all pattern sales donations have gone (this will be updated occasionally; a more complete list may be found in the instagram story highlight and a complete list with links is on Lee's ravelry designer page).

about patterns by Lee Meredith

Quick knits are patterns which take no more than 20 yards of yarn (many 10 yards or fewer). The leethal quick knits club ran August 2009 - June 2011 and consisted of 2 patterns per month, all of which are available to you now in various sets and ebooks.

Lee's knitting-related work in print publications

patterns at your local yarn shop

If your local shop sells pdfs through ravelry's in-store sales program, then you can buy most pattern pdfs through the shop and have them emailed to you (and put in your rav library), for the same price as buying the pdfs through ravelry yourself (to support your local shop). The stores listed below sell the print versions of some patterns.
