Patterns by Julia Kroyan
About the Designer

Julia Kroyan has been a passionate knitter for nearly all her life. She was taught how to knit by her mother and friends when she started elementary school. After knitting a few scarves, Julia tried to make a sweater in high school and it turned out great. She has been hooked on knitting ever since!

With a background in Applied Mathematics, Julia is a software developer by day and finds periodic knitting breaks to be the best relaxation mechanism. In pursuit of a perfect balance between the worlds of knitting and computers, Julia designed and co-created the JKnit pattern format and software.

Pattern design is a relatively new interest of Julia's. She finds this creative process to be very exciting and has many interesting ideas. Julia especially enjoys mixing classic and modern styles to create functional designs with an interesting twist.
