About Mary Annarella
Lyrical Knits is the creative endeavor of designer Mary Annarella. Mary started knitting as a college student when she really wanted a round-yoked, Icelandic pullover but couldn’t afford one. She bought some yarn from a tiny shelf of craft supplies at a local Woolworth store (remember those?) and practiced casting on using chopsticks since she’d forgotten to purchase needles.
Mary’s knitting life got a lot of upgrades since those knitting-with-chopsticks days: beautiful hand-dyed yarns are readily available, interchangeable needles rocked her world, and she’s been publishing her own outstanding knitting patterns since 2010. She’s a sweater girl who is passionate about helping knitters get a great fit and loves designing accessories that play with geometry and fun, easy-to-knit construction. She takes particular delight in seeing knitters learn from her work to create something that makes them happy.
Look for Mary’s patterns on her website Lyrical Knits and on Ravelry as Mary-Annarella.
