Weekend is a collection of 12 simple, modern knits you can live in on the weekend; knits you can create in a weekend.

Knit using bulky and super bulky yarn, these sweaters and accessories exude comfort and ease. My mission is to create casual, contemporary, wearable handknits that can serve as foundation pieces in anyone’s wardrobe. Approachable patterns that aren’t too complex, making knitters say, “I want to make that!”

I’m a minimalist at heart and I truly believe less is more, and simple is good. To me, simple equals wearable. Simple equals doable. And there’s no greater satisfaction than finishing a hand-knit piece, trying it on and falling in love with it. My goal as a knitter is to make go-to pieces that feel just right, like my favorite soft gray pullover from college. If you spend precious time knitting a garment, you want to love it and wear it a lot. It’s as simple as that. That, to me, is the definition of hand-knit success. And that’s what I hope to share with you in this collection.

Jen has self-published knitwear patterns since 2010, and her designs have been published in Knit Simple Magazine, Noro Magazine, Knitsy Magazine and Rowan’s Online Publications. Her most popular pattern, the Gap-tastic cowl, has been knit 15,854 times on Ravelry. Jen is passionate about sharing the love of knitting by teaching knitting classes to adults and children at local high schools and workshops, and loves knitting with her daughter.
