Lyrical Knits is the creative endeavor of designer Mary Annarella. Mary learned to knit over 20 years ago, practicing with chunky wool on chopsticks. Realizing that the chopsticks weren’t ideal, she soon discovered circular knitting needles, and has been creating seamless garments ever since.
Her designs leans toward classic shapes with an attention to detail. Feminine without being precious or stodgy, her garment designs are all constructed seamlessly and (mostly) from the top-down whether they involve set-in or raglan sleeves.
As a biology instructor, science geek, and professional singer, designing and pattern-writing merge the technical and creative aspects of her nature. She takes particular delight in seeing knitters use her patterns to create something that makes them happy, fits them well, and keeps them warm.”
