Mary Lou Egan

Teacher and designer · St. Paul, Minnesota

Mary Lou Egan has been teaching knitting and designing for a long time. She teaches regularly at the famous Yarnery in St. Paul and at shops and fiber festivals nationwide.

As a teacher, she likes class to be fun, and the knitting not stressful. Teaching all levels plus working knitting clinic has given her insight into ways to address the challenges knitters face, and the chance to practice tips and tricks on unsuspecting knitters.

The title of her last book Drop-Dead Easy Knits—co-authored with Gale Zucker and Kirsten Kapur—sums up her knitting philosophy.  

Now semi-retired, Mary Lou has taken up rigid-heddle weaving and spends time with her Norwegian Fjord horse and in her big garden. You can follow MLEganDesign on Instagram and find her designs on Ravelry, where her username is  MLEgan.
