Allison O’Mahony is a knitting designer and technical editor. Through her company Kniterations, she provides patterns for functional, modern knitwear and a wide range of technical editing services. Creative and analytical, Allison enjoys both developing her own patterns and helping other designers perfect theirs.
As a tech editor, Allison loves to help designers feel confident that their patterns are in the best possible shape before publication. In addition to carefully checking for errors, she works with designers to improve the overall clarity and consistency of their patterns while maintaining their unique style and voice.
As a designer, Allison’s publishing credits include Interweave Knits Holiday 2017, the Knit Picks Under 200 collection, SweetGeorgia Yarn’s Holidays with SweetGeorgia Vol. 2 collection, and the February 2017 issue of Knotions. She was also featured as a designer in Patternfish’s September 2016 newsletter. Her self-published designs can be found all over the Internet, including on the Kniterations website, in her Ravelry store, as well as on Etsy, Patternfish, Kollabora, Craft Foxes, and Love Knitting.
Allison lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada with her husband Dave. She can almost always be found within arm’s reach of her knitting bag and calculator (and quite often either a coffee or a pint, depending on the time of day).
