Stefanie Japel

I learned to knit from my grandma when I was 8 years old. I’ve grown up wearing her sweaters and borrowing the ones she made for other people. Most of these sweaters are raglans, knit in the round from the top. I continue this sweatermaking tradition.

My work has appeared in a number of books and publications including Big Girl Knits, Stitch N Bitch Nation, KnitGrrl, Knit Wit, Not Another Teen Knitting Book, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.1, and Vogue Knitting Magazine.

I have designed patterns for Stitch Diva Studios, the yarn companies Southwest Trading Company, JCA Reynolds, Artful Yarns, Tilli Tomas, and for Mission Falls.

I’m currently working on my third knitting book at F&W Publishing, to be released in Fall 2010.
