About Grace:

Color. Yarn. Texture. Fashion. These are the four pillars of every pattern designed by Grace Akhrem. Colors so vibrant and saturated, you can’t help but smile. Yarn that tells you what it wants to be, seeing if you’ll listen. Texture that looks as good as it feels. And fashion that turns your needles into paintbrushes.

Grace focuses on construction and technique in all of her designs. Most of her patterns are designed for the adventurous beginner or the intermediate knitter. In addition to her career as a designer, she also teaches locally in Los Angeles and nationally around the U.S.
