I’ve been fortunate to make my passion for yarn a career for many years and I’m still learning new things. My favorite way to work through my at-home stash is making blankets. I also love to hang out in my garden whenever I can.

A self-taught designer, I use my art and design background whenever I can, especially when it comes to combining colours - my favourite! I always have several projects on the go and love to D.I.Y. anything I can.

My Nana taught me how to knit and crochet when I was small - little did I know she was laying the groundwork for my career as a Knit and Crochet designer! After studying Fashion Design in college, I joined Patons and have been a designer here for 10 years. It is still amazing to me that I get to come to work every day and do what I love.

Admittedly, my first project was a half-finished dishcloth I made as a child when my Aunt first taught me to knit. It wasn’t until my university years that I truly learned the joy and satisfaction of knitting and crocheting. I now enjoy a career doing what helped me relax and hope these patterns do the same for you.

Designer Katherine Poole-Fournier Headshot

I am a junior designer with Patons North America. My mother taught me how to knit when I was a child. Before joining the Patons design team, I completed graduate research in politics and aesthetics. When I am not knitting or crocheting, I am most likely to be found at the park with my dog, Scylla.

Beat the cold and start stitching these True North patterns, made exclusively in Patons® yarns.
