Kate Atherley is a triple threat: technical editor, designer, teacher.
Her biggest high-wire act is her exquisitely precise work known as technical editing. As Knitty.com’s Managing Technical Editor, she makes sure that a pattern actually works—the math, the wording, the stitch counts, the all of it.
As a seasoned designer, she creates designs with a special attention to detail. Her book Knit Mitts! captures the charm of mittens along with the puzzle of making them fit right. Custom Socks is a next-level guide to making excellent socks. And her technical guide, The Knitter’s Dictionary: Knitting Know-How from A to Z, is a bookshelf essential. Kate’s latest publishing foray is Custom Shawls for the Curious and Creative Knitter, with co-author Kim McBrien Evans.
Kate teaches at knitting events across the world. If you have the opportunity to take a class with her, don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best.
Kate lives in Toronto with her husband and their challenging but adorable rescue dog, Dexter.
