2018

WELCOME! THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY!

I’m Shannon of Very Shannon - a Canadian knitwear design company that focuses on modern, mindful and relaxing knits.

I am continually inspired to create designs that are easy to wear, rich in texture, and that allow makers to have fun and feel confident in both my patterns and their skills.

I hope that my designs find their way onto your needles and into your gorgeous handmade wardrobes and that they encourage you to slow down, take a breath and sink into the rewarding process of slow fashion.

Be mindful, relax and make.

ABOUT ME

I'm a knitwear & sewing pattern designer and author & publisher (Marian Rae Publications). I'm happily living a handmade life in Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island with my husband and two daughters. I adore sewing, knitting, drinking coffee, doing yoga, and being at the ocean.

STYLE & QUALITY

I love to design patterns for the modern knitter & sewer. With their engaging textures, vibrant colors and striking lines, my fun, dynamic garments and accessories are destined to become wardrobe staples. 

BOOKS & PUBLISHING

I'm the co-author and co-publisher of Within (Marian Rae Publications, 2016), Seasonless (Marian Rae Publications, 2014) and Journey (Marian Rae Publications, 2013), and co-publisher of Island (Marian Rae Publications, 2012). My work has also appeared in such works as Coffeehouse Knits (Interweave, 2019) Laine (Issue 6, 2018), Brooklyn Tweed Wool People (June 2018), Making Magazine, Pom Pom Quarterly, Quince & Co.
