Welcome knitters & readers!

I do two things – create knit designs that spark your needles and write epic love stories that transport your heart.

Click below to explore inspiration – from celestial forms to Viking culture – and get details and links to designs and books.

Mystery Knitalongs

Come knit together! Two times each year, hundreds of us come together to knit a design that I create based on lunar themes, which I release as a series of secret clues. Online, we enjoy camaraderie and share inspiration. You can join a club to get a peek behind-the-scenes. I offer cute moon-yarn-ball stickers & pins, too!

Knit Design

Grab some yarn and cast on designs based on natural forms – wildflowers, leaves, lichens, urchins, and the movements of moons, star clusters, and human-made satellites. See more about 100+ designs.


Lose yourself in stories that cross time, from a bleak future to 10th century Iceland, a land of rugged beauty and ax-hewn justice. Beautiful Wreck and So Wild A Dream are set in a fictional Viking “White Woods” world. Learn more about the books and get all the links!

“One of the most helpful mystery knitalong hosts I’ve ever seen,”

“Larissa Brown’s Beautiful Wreck weaves an intensely gripping tale
about the strength of women
and the love they carry. This is the story we’ve been waiting for. .”

My Story

My grandmother taught me to knit on her chenille couch in 1970s New Jersey. Since then, I’ve brought together thousands of knitters through knitalongs, essays about the crafting life, 100+ designs, two craft books, mixed media art, and fiction. In 2001, I challenged myself to write a novel, and today I’m a novelist, too. The rest of my story is here.
