About the Designer
Alicia Plummer (she/her) is a late thirtysomething knitwear designer who lives in Western Maine, half-way between the White Mountains and the Ocean. She writes knitting patterns because she likes storytelling with her hands. She has two wonderful girls and spends her time outdoors, kayaking, hiking, wandering trails and drinking in sunsets. She believes that an hour a day of the forest is just enough to sustain happiness. She believes in grace, Jesus, and loving everyone as they are. Each pattern is designed around a memory or a feel- ing, and it’s also a canvas for you to make your own. They’re patterns to live life in. Find her on instagram @aliciaplums and on Ravelry.
