About Stephen –

Stephen West’s shawl designs and innovative use of color have helped him become an internationally recognized and respected designer.

Stephen was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  He studied dance at the University of Illinois, where he encountered his first local yarn store, Klose Knit in Urbana.  The creative atmosphere of that local shop spurred Stephen to start designing patterns, and he was soon featured in Knitty’s fall 2009 issue with his Colonnade Shawl.  Not long after, he moved to Amsterdam, publishing more patterns and launching a series of pattern books under the name Westknits.  He continues to produce pattern books and hosts several online knit-alongs each year.  His simple, clean, architectural designs have now been knitted by thousands of knitters all over the world.

Stephen has taught workshops throughout the United States and internationally in Finland, Denmark, Germany, Italy, France, Israel, Iceland, UK, and Amsterdam where he co-owns Stephen and Penelope, a yarn boutique in city center.  In 2019 Stephen and his business partner Malia Mae Joseph realized a long-held dream by launching their first yarn brand, West Wool.
