Katrina King

Threaded Dream Studio
Fort Collins, Colorado
My name is Katrina and I have been surrounded by creativity my entire life, first through my grandmothers and mother and now through my own curiosity and the influence of my close friends. I started designing patterns in 2013 and have been published in PieceWork, Knitting Traditions, Vintage Crochet, Knitter’s Magazine and HandWoven. I have also worked with The Unique Sheep and Yarn Crush creating exclusive knit patterns for club members. Other crafts beyond knitting, weaving and crochet that I enjoys are tatting, kumihimo, spinning, counted cross stitch and hand embroidery. Inspiration for my pieces comes from a wide variety of sources; the paintings of Van Gogh and Monet along with epic fantasy novels written by Jacqueline Carey, George R.R. Martin and Roger Zelazny. With the unexpected passing of my husband in 2016, creating a business using my creative skills has taken on a new urgency. My goals at this point in life are to raise my two teen daughters to be strong, independent women and build a creative art filled life for myself.
