A Word from Jojodabom

Hey Ya’ll I am Katherine aka jojodabom! I am a designer, mom, and emergency room nurse. Even though I have only started publishing patterns I have been designing since I was 16 and honestly it is my happy place.

Fall in the North Country means harvest time in the farmlands scattered throughout our beautiful countryside.
The big crops here are Corn and Hay, and no the hay is not true wheat, but it is what inspired this lovely cabled square. To me it is a piece of my home and I love to share it with you all

Ok enough story time back to the square and the wonderful make along it is apart of. This make along has a whole bunch of wonderful patterns! You can get them in an entire bundle here Cozy Fall Make Along Knitting Bundle. 30% of your purchase goes to Cure Childhood Cancer. And then you have all the adorable squares in one place!
