My name’s Nicole and I am the maker behind Miskunn.
I design knitting and crochet patterns for the modern maker. I keep my designs clean and minimal, always aiming for true functionality. It’s nice to have a beautiful piece of knitwear, but it’s even nicer to be able to use that piece day to day.
Miskunn patterns are written in a clear, concise format for easy readability. The goal here to make a design you enjoy, not wade through endless details. I try my best to find a happy medium between these two aspects of pattern design and provide you with a high quality pattern you can come back to time and time again without fuss.
My grandmother, Wilma, always told me that who we are is entirely up to us and if we want to create a future for ourselves, even if it seems unrealistic, it can be done with hard work and determination.
While she never knit or crocheted herself, she was driven by creating with her own two hands, putting in the work, and not cutting corners. She always told me that if I were going to own my own business one day I couldn’t be afraid to work hard myself and to always be looking for way to improve upon what was already good to make it even better. Like most areas in my life, I keep her advice close to my heart and I strive to do exactly as she taught me.
Thank you so very much for being here and for allowing me to continue doing what I absolutely love.
