Jessica Brist

Jessica, the knitting pattern designer behind Double the Stitches, started her business as several of us do, with selling hand knit products. However, she was selling knits to photographers for baby photoshoots! In this episode, she shares a few of the challenges with that and how it lead to a pivot designing knitting patterns, leaving her job at a local yarn shop, and diving deep into community building online.

In this episode, we chat about her free group, paid group, in-person events, and the free upcoming virtual summit, Knit Happy! Summit, happening next week: February 15-18, 2024.

Be sure to tune in for an inside peek at all the things, including the inspiration behind the name "Double the Stitches" inside this episode!
