Patty first learned to knit when she was seven, but it wasn't until adulthood and working on Broadway as a Stage Manager that knitting became an obsession. Patty quickly moved from daily knitting to study, teaching and designing. When she made her obsession her full time job she started by running a local yarn shop in New York City and moved on to work for Lion Brand Studio to create the LBYS Education Center in NY. Patty is now full time designer whose designs are published in many magazines including Creative Knitting, as well as books by Noro, Cascade and Tahki Stacy Charles. See more of her work at

Even though I learned a lot there were parts that I had to google and start over several times. Disappointing

Hello, I purchased this class a number of years ago. I started this class at least one time earlier. I can not begin to express how helpful this class has been. When I first started to knit, I had no idea of the many twist and turns there were in knitting. Patty Lyons has given me such a complete picture of circular knitting. I am wanting to do all things "circular" now. When I first started this class, 2018 I wrote Ms. Lyons and told her I did not think I could do it. Her reply was don't give up on something that you have not tried. I thank her for that and I am glad I gave it a try. Thanks, Ms Lyons for such an excellent job. Denver H.

I have used the lessons learned through this class for a few other projects. I'm preparing gauge swatches for two projects similar to His and Her Headbands and Slinky Hat. Both patterns are designed for straight needles then switching to circs. I'm going to try using only circs. The pattern calls for ribbing, stockinette stitch for the body and color changes. I'll submit a report on how successful I am.

Great class. Excellent instructor. I would take another class from Patty. I enjoyed it and learned a lot. I especially like swatchzilla.

Thank you Patty for this wonderful class. I, too, love working in the round. The bind-offs were very helpful and easy to understand with your wonderful teaching method.
