Friday, Saturday, & Sunday
May 14-16, 2021

The focus of Indie Untangled has always been on small yarn businesses. At our next virtual show, we’ll be shining the spotlight on newer dyers and makers and those with less than 10k followers on Instagram. Join us and get to know these creatives from the comfort of your own home!

“Knitting and knit design allows me to embrace and express my identity as a queer person in ways I never anticipated. I try to build opportunities for individual customization into my designs so that people that knit my patterns can feel a similar level of empowerment and ownership of their own identity.”

“I design patterns that are easier than they look, with low-pressure instructions and wearable results. I love showing off beautiful hand dyed yarn through simple stitches and shapes with clean lines and thoughtful details, and I’m often inspired by learning something new.”

“My patterns are designed with size inclusivity at the forefront. As a plus-size designer, I too want to wear what I design, and hope others of all sizes and body types will also someday knit, love, and wear my designs.”

“I began self-publishing patterns in 2010 and enjoy designing sweaters, shawls, and accessories that feature harmonious textures and thoughtfully curated details. As a mostly self-taught knitter, I aim to inspire and empower other knitters to continue to build upon their skills and feel confident in their ability to make show-stopping pieces of knitwear that they can proudly wear for years to come.”

“I am a professional dancer diagnosed with ADHD who uses the beauty of Afrocentric motifs to create works that challenge the mind but are accessible to all types of knitters! Colorwork and the use of knitting to calm the mind are my fascination!”

Sarah Krentz

Swanky Emu Knits

“I’m Sarah (she/her), a queer, fat, vintage-loving goofball. I design knitting patterns that automatically adapt to your unique set of body measurements with an accompanying spreadsheet. No size limits, no body proportion assumptions, just truly size-inclusive garments for everyone.”

Corrado Lark


“Knitting is one of my greatest joys and it has led me on a grand journey. I’m an actor and singer who loves a good pop culture pun. I bring that inspiration to my ornate designs, which come from my head somewhere I can’t exactly place, like a meditative state.”

Jennifer Lassonde

“I’m a knitting and crochet designer specializing in accessories that look complicated but are simple to execute. From shawls to hats, mitts and cowls, you’ll find patterns that are fun to knit and also really wearable and stylish!”
