Karie Westermann

Karie does things with wool and words. Her first book — This Thing of Paper — was published on November 30, 2017.


From beautiful colourwork mittens inspired by Karie's Scandinavian childhood to stunning shawls worked in artisan hand-dyed yarns, Karie's patterns are a joy to knit.

Meet Karie 


Karie lives in Scotland's biggest city, Glasgow, with inspirational nature on her doorstep. She is originally from Scandinavia which informs a lot of her work. She loves rustic yarns, bright colour palettes, and is yet to meet a dog she doesn't like.
