Announcement   Beautiful, heirloom-quality hats and accessories made from squishable natural fibers. Knitting patterns based in deep family relationships and stories.

I believe in wool blends that are soft, stitch patterns that are unusual, and finished garments that catch the eye. Where possible, I use indie dyers and yarn from natural/organic farms. My mission is to provide enviably wearable handknits at a reasonable price!

About

Making the world more fantastically squishy, one stitch at a time.

Once upon a time, I was a young mama to two tiny twin boys. My husband was working nights and going to school during the day, and we shared a car. Needless to say, I was a little stir crazy. One quiet morning, I looked at one of my boys' sweaters and thought, "I bet I could figure out how to do that..." and I discovered the creative love my life had been missing.

Knitting is pure pleasure for me, and every item I make is a chance to share that love. I enjoy the tiny details: an unusual cable, the fleck of a tweed, the subtle color shift in a yarn. I believe it's those details that make a truly beautiful garment, and allow it to stand out. I see knitting as an art form, and I love being able to share that art with you!

Whether you're after patterns or a finished item, I hope you find something that's just your style! We can always talk color and fiber options. If you're after something in particular or have any questions, feel free to message me or hit "Request Custom Item." I'm happy to work with you. Let's chat.

    I started knitting back in 2003. It started as a hobby to fill my time while my husband worked nights, and has become my constant companion. I love the unending variability of making a beautiful garment from two sticks and one long strand of yarn!

Frequently asked questions

How do I order something from you?

♥ Patterns may be ordered from the shop and downloaded in PDF format immediately. You may also download patterns from Ravelry.
♥ Ready-to-ship items may be ordered from Etsy and will be shipped in 1-2 business days.
♥ Made-to-order knitted items may be ordered from Etsy. I will want your input on yarn color and size. Most customers want to chat about these things before they order, but if you don't, that's OK with me! Go ahead and place your order when you feel you're ready. Knitting time is noted on each listing, but averages 5-7 days. Please note that I cannot start on your item until I have received payment.
♥ Custom knitted items (e.g. an item that looks nothing like anything I have listed) are available. Contact me for more info!

May I sell something I make from one of your patterns?

You may use any of my knitting patterns for limited commercial purposes, i.e. when you have knitted the garment(s) yourself without the help of contract knitters, outworkers, or mass manufacturing. If you have questions about this policy, please ask!

How often do you post new items in your shop?

♥ Patterns are dependent on the creative process, including editing and test knitters, but I have several coming your way over the next several months!
♥ You may order a pattern, made-to-order, or custom item at any time.
♥ Ready-to-ship postings will fluctuate, depending on how busy I am with other orders or creating new patterns. For updates on the content for the shop updates, follow along with us on Instagram (@deeprootsknits) and sign up for our newsletter on the blog!

What is your turnaround time for Made to Order items?

Right now, turnaround is about 5-7 business days, but sometimes shorter.

Do you combine shipping if we buy several items?

Yes, we do! Just send an email to deeprootsknits@gmail.com with your order information and I will refund the shipping.

What's the best way to care for my Deep Roots Knits?

♥ Wool, cashmere, and alpaca will shrink and felt if washed, even by hand, in hot water. Please use cold water at all times.
♥ Hand washing is best for animal fibers to prevent pilling and felting. I prefer to soak my handknits in a sink filled with water and a little Euclan or Soak and then squeeze (not wring) gently until they are damp.
♥ However, I do put socks in my washer in a mesh bag on the hand wash setting, knowing they will felt a bit.
♥ Lay damp handknits flat to dry. Hanging can stretch garments, and the dryer will shrink them!
