Handknits and Hygge


Knitting designer and tech editor Nicky Jensen of Handknits and Hygge is a co-founder of the Accessible Patterns Index. Nicky also offers tech editing and pattern grading services. Most of Nicky’s patterns are available as Printer Friendly PDFs and Low Vision PDFs that are tested with Adobe Read Out Loud. Some are available as Dark Mode PDFs. Designs are very wearable and interesting to make, too. The Stormy Open Back Sweater and the Ocean City Pullover are singing their siren’s song.
