  • A brief note
      Hello everyone, Every day I keep thinking about sitting down and writing a blog post. Yet somehow it has not happened yet. My knitting adventure has taken a brief break over the past few months. I tried to keep up, but life got busy with other things and there were days when my knitting needles were left untouched, and I couldn’t manage to make…
  • All the best….

I hope that your year of 2022 has been a good one and you are going to have pleasant and safe last days of this year.  As another year is coming to an end, I look back to what I…
  • Winter Cowl – Malabrigo Quickie

The pattern calls for one skein of Mechita yarn.  You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry: Winter Cowl  Payhip: Winter Cowl and soon it will be also available on Lovecraft website.  I love how the honeycomb pattern creates a 3D appeal yet is simple enough for new knitters…
  • Tutorial for Cat Silhouette Bookmark
      I have created this super-fast knitting pattern for the Cat Silhouette Bookmark in 2015 and it has been my most downloaded knitting pattern for some time, passing over the knitting pattern for Minions.   Even though this pattern is available for free, I still try to help people if they contact me and ask for help. One of the most asked questions I receive about this, and…

My life outside of the knitting world took over and I didn’t have time to knit or think about knitting for some time. The few brief moments I had over the past two months I spent…
  • Life as a work in progress…..
      These two images are my favorites, they remind me that life is filled mostly with little things that make our day-to-day lives worth living. We may not see them or appreciate them at the moment, but when we look back at them, they give us a warm feeling of accomplishment, happiness and joy.  Sometimes our lives get tangled up and we have to go…

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!
