About the Author

Jennifer Dassau

Knitting is awesome; thank you for visiting my page! I am an independent knitwear pattern designer who loves combining engaging construction, modern shapes and the beauty of creating something wearable. I am a particular fan of garments worked seamlessly from the top down, asymmetric shawls that feature color and texture, and the magic of short rows. From my background in fashion on Seventh Avenue, I've nurtured my delight in the line, color and shape of beautiful clothing and accessories; from my even earlier experience in the legal field, I've honed my skills in communicating in a clear, organized and approachable way.
I publish designs regularly in knit.wear and other Interweave magazines, collaborate with indie dyers and mainstream yarn companies, and maintain a growing indie catalog of patterns. My self-published designs are available on Ravelry at www.ravelry.com/designers/jennifer-dassau
Find me on Ravelry, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest as knittingvortex, and on Facebook and YouTube as The Knitting Vortex.
