about handmaine knits

I’m Amanda, an avid knitter, designer, and dyer. Originally from the Midwest, I now live in beautiful Maine with my husband and kids.

I started designing in 2009 when my first pattern was included in the Holiday Gifts Issue of Interweave Knits. Since then, my designs have been published in Interweave Knits, Twist Collective, and Knitscene Magazines. I also enjoy working with yarn companies and indie dyers, such as Quartermoon Fiber Company, Miss Babs, SweetGeorgia Yarns.

As a designer, my goal is to create garments and accessories with clean modern lines and interesting details. I particularly like unique construction elements and techniques that are fun to knit. Happy knitting!
