Announcement   Howdy! I'm Anastacia, and I sell digital downloads. When I decided to start selling other digital goodies besides my knit and crochet patterns, I thought long and hard about opening a separate shop. I know all the advice online tells you to start a new shop, but I have chosen to combine all my digital downloads into one place, so you can see all of my feedback in one place. So please understand this is my new etsy shop, formerly known as Anastacia Knits, now Anastacia Designs.

I currently sell only digital downloads - in order words, you'll be printing your own knit and crochet patterns, stickers, planner printables, coloring pages, etc; they are available in .pdf format. You are responsible for having the necessary software and printer to print the downloads yourself - everyone's printer and computer is different so I can only help so much!

You will receive an email from etsy after your purchase complete with download instructions. If you are having issues with your download, please visit the Etsy help page:

https://www.etsy.com/help/article/3949?ref=help_search_result

100% of the profits from the planner stickers goes to Alzheimer's Research - during the summer, I'll donate this money directly to my Alzheimer's Every Mile a Memory walk team (out of Massachusetts); in the winter, I'll donate directly to Alzheimer's.

Things about me & my knit/crochet design work:

I've been published in both print and e-book collections, including: Just Socks: Favorite Patterns to Knit and Crochet, Love of Crochet magazine, Contrarian Shawls e-book, Nazli Gelin Book 5: Bring Your Garden Inside e-book, Crochet -1-2-3, I Like Crochet, and Crochet World. I'm also regularly published in the online crochet magazine, Crochetvolution.

I'm anastaciaknits on Ravelry, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!

As such, all patterns are to be considered FINAL sale... i.e. I will not refund your money after sending your pattern to you as there is really no way to "return" a pdf pattern.

About

Anastacia Knits Designs

Hi there!

When I was a little kid, I learned to crochet from my mom and grandmother, and like most of you, I started making doll clothes and then promptly moved on to the next thing - I definitely had a thing for friendship bracelets and those woven potholder looms.

When I was 14, we moved, and I wanted a new afghan to match my new bedroom & I couldn't convince any of the crocheters in my life - there were a lot - to make me one. So I went to the mall with a friend, where we discovered there weren't any yarn shops! and drove around until we found a store that sold yarn. I bought a bunch of colors and a crochet hook and just started crocheting, and got hooked - yes, pun intented!

I didn't realize then that what I was actually doing was the beginning of designing - making something without a pattern. I just kept going, making stuff out of my head, because I only had the vaguest concept of patterns. My mom taught me to read patterns, my grandmother gave me a stack of old crochet magazines, and I ran with it. I'd look at something, start making it, but immediately wanted to "improve" it or "what if I did this instead of this?" I just kept going like that for years.

I finally got started designing for real with the advent of Ravelry - which is when a lot of designers started, I think. I was able to do a lot of research, realize all the behind the scenes stuff that has to be done in order to make a well written pattern, learned about tech editing and testing and the value of fabulous photography, and sat down and designed my first pattern - "Half Circle Shawl with Scalloped Edging" yuck title! but pretty design! I told my husband I'd put the pattern up for sale for 3 months, and if I didn't sell it once, I'd make it be a free pattern and that'd be the end of that. To my surprise, it not only sold, but sold WELL - of course, back when I started designing shawls, I was practically the only one out there selling individual crochet shawl patterns on Ravelry, so I didn't have a lot of competition (it was one reason why I specifically started off with a shawl - that and no real gauge or sizing issues!). I still design mainly shawls for that reason - you don't have to worry about fiber, will this item stretch out of shape, and drape isn't such an issue as with garments.

Hi! Thank you for stopping by and having a look. All of my patterns are 100% created, written, & crocheted by me, tech edited by a professional editor with years of experience in her field, & tested by at least 6 crocheters (usually more).

All digital planner goodies are designed by me, utilizing commercial use graphics either found on the net or made by me. Most graphics are from freepik.com, and if I do not site the source, assume it comes from freepik.
