Hi! I am Betty McKnit (Beth McKee Elliott) and I am a knitting and crochet designer and teacher.
I have been crocheting and knitting since I was a little girl. I don't remember when I started designing, but I enjoy making and designing simple, versatile “go-to” projects that can be adapted for different yarns and sizes.
My most well-known design is the viral crochet pattern the 6-Day Kid Blanket. I never imagined that the humble little crochet blankie I made for my great-nephew would be the seed for a whole line of crochet patterns and the origins of a community of wonderful people passionate about making them. It warms my heart to know how many dearly loved people are wrapped up warm and cozy in 6-Day Blankets right now.
I love this community of people who have come together around the 6-Day Kid Blanket and my other patterns. It is a very positive and supportive space. I hope you'll join us!
The Betty McKnitiverse is an international community of crocheters and knitters interested in learning and creating 6-Day Blankets (and variations) and other crochet and knit patterns by Betty McKnit and others.
We come together to learn, laugh, and create together. Any crocheter or knitter is welcome, even if you are just beginning your yarny journey.
