Knitting Patterns

Announcement    Hi there! These are some patterns I've developed over the years for my own projects that I thought I'd share. They haven't been thoroughly pattern-tested by anyone besides myself, so let me know if you have any trouble with them and I'll be happy to answer your questions! I also have some additional, less polished patterns available on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/stores/ginger-nifty.

I occasionally knit custom pieces as well, so send me a message if you're interested and I'll let you know if I can do it! I generally focus on hats, scarves, mittens, legwarmers, and baby items.

About GingerNifty

Sales 39
On Etsy since 2010

Ever since my grandma taught me to knit at age 8, I've enjoyed seeing projects come together and designing unique items.

I've been knitting since my grandmother taught me how to make a basic garter stitch scarf at the age of 8. From the time I was in middle school, I would pick out fluffy novelty yarns and knit scarves for my friends and relatives as gifts.

Since then I've used old magazines, online patterns, and taken classes to learn new techniques. Over time, my knitting skills have grown and now I've made everything from baby hats to complex lacework sweaters to intricate socks. I love learning and mastering new patterns, and often pick projects that are a challenge!

I eventually started designing my own patterns scarves, baby hats, and other accessories. About four years ago, I was fundraising for a school/missions trip to Asia, and started selling my knitted items on Etsy and to my family and friends.

In the summer of 2012 I had the opportunity to spend three weeks in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti teaching knitting as a job skill. I partnered with The Apparent Project, (apparentproject.org) a non-profit ministry that works to provide jobs to parents so that they don't have to relinquish their children. I loved seeing the creativity and work ethic of the Haitian people I taught.

The name "Ginger Nifty" came from a dream my mom had, where me and my (also red-headed) siblings were running a store.
