Kate Atherley, Instructor
Kate is a professional technical editor and a seasoned designer and teacher in her own right. Her first book, Beyond Knit & Purl, has been praised as the 21st century "Knitting for Anarchists" book, and her second book, Knit Accessories: Essentials & Variations, was published in late 2012 to great acclaim. Her Basic Ribbed Sock pattern is in the top 10 most popular socks on Ravelry, and her Bigger on the Inside shawl caused a minor sensation when it was released in the spring of 2012.
Kate taught five sold-out classes at Sock Summit 2011, and she regularly teaches at stores and events across North America, including Vogue Knitting Live and Interweave Knitting Lab. Her work has appeared in Creative Knitting magazine, Knitty, Interweave's Sockupied, the U.K. magazine Let's Knit and a wide range of books. See more of her work at www.WisenHeldaKnits.com.
