Hey! I'm Jen.
Thanks for stopping by.

I am a knitter, knitwear pattern designer, graphic designer, instructor and author. My blog, HeyJenRenee, is mostly about knitting, crafting, concerts, skateboarding and music. Hardcore, metal, punk ... I love it all.

Lovely Des Moines, Iowa is the place I call home, and that's where I knit and live with my awesomely wild and wonderful family. Clean, modern designs are my thing and I have a love and appreciation for simple knits that are easy to wear.

My designs have been published in Knit Simple Magazine, Noro Magazine, Knitsy Magazine and Rowan’s Online Publications and I have self-published knitwear patterns online since 2010. Originally trained in the arts, I draw my own patterns, illustrations and schematics and do my own graphic design work.

I have written and self-published two knitting books, Weekend and Everyday.

If you have any questions, have wholesale inquiries or just want to say hello, feel free to email me at heyjenrenee@gmail.com or use the Contact form on this website.

I can’t wait to hear from you!
