• Maria Yarley started designing knitting patterns after one too many futile searches for the perfect pattern. She derives her inspiration from the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, random sightings of beautiful colors and motifs, and the next event requiring the perfect custom knitwear. She loves the finer, fashionable things of life, but her full life with three young children keeps her thinking practically about what types of garments will be feasible to make and sensible to wear in day-to-day life.
