  • Aiofe Wrap
      This Aiofe Wrap has been a project in making for some time. I made a sketch few months ago, and then knitted a sample in a bulkier weight yarn. I really liked it. I started on another sample and then I had some third party’s projects to work on and put this aside. During the summer I got an opportunity to collaborate with Ula…

About Me

Stana D. Sortor

Stana D. Sortor’s grandmother taught her how to knit and crochet when she was a little girl. Ever since she took her projects everywhere. Of course she has experienced some sidesteps on her knitting path, like trying to be an artist, photographer or writer, but she always returned to her favorite activity.

Some of my patterns are for sale and plenty are free. The patterns for sale are helping me to support my creativity and share it with you.

You can also purchase the patterns in my Etsy store, on Payhip, on LoveCrafts, on KnitPicks, on Ravelry, or you can buy me a coffee to show your appreciation of my free patterns.

I also have a newsletter I started this year where subscribers get exclusive offers available only to them. Use the contact form below to subscribe.

Thank you for stopping by.

I hope you will have fun when knitting some of my creations!
