Teacher: Patty LyonsSee Classes Taught by This Teacher »
Patty Lyons learned to knit when she was seven, but it was twelve years ago, while working on Broadway as a Stage Manager, that she rediscovered her passion for knitting. Eight years ago Patty decided to give up her life on the stage to work full-time in the knitting world. After managing a local yarn store, in 2008 she was hired by Lion Brand Yarn as the Studio Director to help create the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. A certified knitting instructor, Patty focuses on helping her students see the “why to” not just the “how to”. She specializes in sweater design and sharing her love of the much-maligned subjects of gauge and blocking. Patty currently teaches more than 30 of the Studio’s 150 workshops and also enjoys teaching at guilds around the country and shows such as Vogue Knitting live and the Knit and Crochet Show. She runs the Studio’s education department, overseeing eight staff teachers and a full lineup of master class teachers.
