Knitwear for Every Body
Universal and Adaptive Knit and Crochet Patterns
Universal and Adaptive Knitwear
Each pattern I design has something special that makes it either universally wearable by many people – like my Marilue Cowl – or incorporating an adaptive design – like my JT Necktie.
I started designing knit and crochet patterns when my mom was diagnosed with ALS. I want each pattern I make to help make ALS a livable disease. At least 10% of all purchases go directly to organizations that support ALS Research and Outreach.

Hi, my name is Liz. When my mom was diagnosed with ALS, I started looking for knitting patterns that would work for her as she struggled with limited mobility and dexterity. I started looking critically at the patterns I found online. Knitting and crochet are great for creating useful clothing and accessories. With just a few simple tweaks, we can create beautiful and functional clothing that work for all people!
What Is ALS
ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a neurodegenerative disease that causes progressive muscle weakness and atrophy. It is a fatal disease with no reliable treatment or cure. Individuals with ALS experience this atrophy and eventual paralysis and death. ALS can present differently in different people, often starting in either the limbs or head and neck.
How can you help?
ALS is currently has no cure….but only b/c we have found one yet. ALS research depends on donations and fundraisers.
If you want to help, consider donating to an ALS organization. Check out options around you for in-person events like ALS walks or Ales for ALS. Fundraise for your events and recruit your friends and family to help!
Support ALS Organizations
There are many organizations out there doing great work to find a cure for ALS through research and clinical trials, as well as patient outreach and support.
No donation is too small! Every dollar makes a different!
