Jessica Potasz


From the time Jessica Potasz was a little girl, she has always enjoyed many forms of art. She graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder with a business degree but continued to enjoy painting and a bit of sewing.  However, she has truly found a passion (or maybe addiction!) for knit and crochet.  It was only fairly recently, in 2013, that Jessica became intrigued with knitting and crochet and learned the skills by watching online videos and tutorials.  Eventually, after looking for patterns of specific items and not finding them, she began to create her own designs.
For Christmas of 2014, Jessica knit her brother a pair of fingerless gloves and posted the pattern to her blog shortly thereafter. This was the beginning of her designing and blogging. She enjoys creating patterns that are modern and beautiful but also easy and truly believes that even the simplest of patterns can have a wonderful impact.
