Kate Dudding, Designer

Photo of a knitted 4-pointed star Xmas ornament Since 1963, Kate Dudding has been knitting and designing sweaters for herself, her family and friends. Her current phase is designing and knitting ponchos and socks, following a Kaffe Fassett multicolor phase and an Aran Isle/guernsey phase.

Since 1989, Kate has been telling stories to audiences of all ages, first to her then 4 year old son, more recently at the New-York Historical Society, the Norman Rockwell Museum and First Night at Saratoga Springs, NY.

Two of her stories were published in KnitLit (too) and Knit Lit the Third. Click here for the pattern for the Knitted Four-Pointed Star (pdf format) and its story, published in KnitLit (too).
