Hello and welcome to my island!
I am Alla, an independent designer and the person behind the Island Knit Design pattern collection.
I have learned to knit at a very young age, and even though I was a passionate knitter for many years, I never knitted from patterns and created each of my designs from scratch, I believed, anyone who can knit, doesn't need a pattern, and all one needs is the yarn and needles.
It took me some while before I realized there are knitters of different levels who are perfecting their knitting skills from readily available patterns and on a constant look for new patterns and fresh ideas for their hand knits.
My family and friends encouraged me to start sharing my passion with others by offering the patterns to the vast community of knitters. This is how I brought my creativity and joy for knitting onto a new level.
Hope you enjoy your experience on my site and find something interesting for yourself.
