Karen Fletcher


Karen Fletcher is a designer and knitter from Ottawa, Canada.  Her love of math and making things made her fall in love with knitting design soon after she learned to knit, she's been selling her designs since 2013.  Her designs can be found at ravelry ( as well as Craftsy.  She loves textured knits, cables, and colourwork, and can often be found knitting a project with those elements while her son "helps" her knit and her daughter unravels her yarn; she is so charmed by their love of yarn that she actually adores this.

Saguaro Pillow

Featuring a single Saguaro cactus, the negative space around it echos the sparse vastness of the desert. The simple, clean construction of one large piece tapers to a point with a button hole. Since there is only one piece of colorwork in the pattern and only two colors, this is a fantastic project for beginners.
