3:00 – 5:00 pm, EDT

There’s plenty of talk these days about what makes a good pattern, but what’s more important is identifying what makes a pattern good for you. Amy will explore what details to look for that make patterns easier to understand and, therefore, to knit. She will also talk fit, yarn substitution, construction choices, and how to identify potential red flags before they push your projects off the rails.


Amy Snell is a knitter, instructor, and designer with an eye for the unusual or unusually captivating. Her designs focus on color, contrast, and texture — often exploring unusual stitch patterns and clever construction in ways that are interesting but accessible. 

Amy loves to help other knitters explore new techniques and expand the way they think about their knitting. Her goal is to make complex concepts accessible and approachable for all knitters, while sharing tips that simplify and improve your process, whether you’ve been knitting for several weeks or several decades! Amy has taught regionally and at national events such as Vogue Knitting Live, Fiberworld, and Rhinebeck, and frequently shares tips and tricks on her website, DeviousKnitter.com.
