  • Love these!! THANK YOU for introducing me to this designer. I am down the rabbit hole!!

  • Love these, too! Already favorited the cardigan and tank on Ravelry. I was looking for the perfect tank pattern and found it! LOVE ❤️

    • I agree! That tank is perfect! Covers the bra straps, isn’t see through, and has a lovely shape and drape.

  • I love that she has a man modeling! And such Great sweaters!! I also love the comment about giving the knitter a rest occasionally. Nice to sometimes have a project where you can just do Plain knitting. Thx!

    • I have a new favorite designer! Thanks for introduceibg Fatima to us.

    • Loved all of these and bought most of them. I have a feeling I will be swatching for Garter Dollop and the Adventure Tank momentarily. Thank you so much for featuring Fatimah and her gorgeous designs!

  • Wow, I can only echo everybody else: I love all of these. I don’t think I’ve ever favorited so many designs at once from one designer – and bought one immediately! I’m off to look at everything thing else on her Ravelry. Thank you!

  • Yet another amazing designer! I really like your take on line and shape. Awilix and Afreet Hat-Embers look very interesting to me. Lovely work.

  • Me, too, in the “love these department.” I’m often drawn to men’s sweaters because of the clean lines. The cardigan will be on my needles soon. And that little Garter Dollop just works! Thanks for the introduction.

  • I love the community you have created and continue to build. Thank you for bringing forward people’s beauty in a way that really sees them and with that creates a connected community. Very grateful. And, please pass along thanks to Fatimah for her designs and great spirit!

  • Love all these designs. Thanks for the introduction to this amazing designer.

  • Great patterns. Love the Cardigan and it wearable for me because it’s man sized. I’ll definitely need to try the tank but with some added sleeves. Don’t want my flabby arms to show. Her hays also look so fun.
    Thank you for show casing this designer.
    So fun.

    • I plan to make the tank as written but wear it over a shirt or t-shirt, I’m also self conscious about my arms 😐

  • Thank you for the intro to this talented designer. Loved many of her unique patterns,

  • “Our cats met” !!! What more can you ask for? Fatimah’s designs are fantastic.

  • Wow – thanks for bring this designer to my attention! Love so many of her patterns.

  • I love the variety in these pieces! I am stuck in a project of too much stockinette!! I’m putting it down for a break and heading for that scarf and hat!! Watch out stash here I come!! Fingers crossed I have the perfect yarn…if not I have resources! Wink wink! Haha!! Wonderful to find this designer! Thank you! Have fun everyone!

  • ❤️ Adventure Tank! That’s my kind of summer top.

  • “Something her husband would wear but was actually interesting to knit”. Yup. There’s a challenge.

  • Oh!!! What nice items!! Definitely going onto raverly to check her out!! Love the tank top!! And the hats!! I have a few family members that will be asking for them for sure!!

  • Thank you for featuring a POC designer! I made a pledge to myself to buy a pattern every week from BIPOC, and I missed last week. Made up for it with six (6!) wonderful patterns from Fatima.
