Hi, my name is Ellen and I love to knit! I'm a fiber artist, knitting pattern designer and technical editor with a background in engineering and education. The Chilly Dog began in 2011 and has become a stash for the knitting knowledge I continue to acquire and share with other knitters.

From cast on to bind off and every stitch in between, The Chilly Dog's extensive Learning Library is filled with hundreds of step-by-step knitting lessons.

As a paid member of The Chilly Dog's Pack  you'll enjoy access to in-depth tutorials and articles designed to help you when you need it most. Whether you're tangled up in a knitting project, eager to take your skills to the next level or craving project inspiration, The Chilly Dog is here for you.

Our Plus level members are also treated to a free pattern each month (usually the latest release), monthly Stitch Counsel meetings via Zoom and discounts on in-person lessons and classes.

No matter how long you knit, there's always something to learn or refresh. Start stashing skills today!
