About Knit Nat



My name is Natasha and welcome to Alaska Knit Nat! I have always had a passion for making useful things, whether they are knit, crocheted, sewn or randomly glued and assembled. I started Alaska Knit Nat in 2010 as a means to keep track of all the stuff I make. I live in Anchorage, Alaska where the winters are long and cold. I’m not much of an outdoorsy person, so I enjoy passing the time cooking, creating and thrift store shopping. I love to share my ideas and inspirations in a clear, concise manner.

My work has been featured in The Knot,  Want That Wedding, PNWeddingAlaska Dispatch News, KTUU-TV, Anchorage Food Mosaic Project, Alaska Public Media, Alaska Bride & Groom MagazineAn Alaska LifeAnchorage Press, Gretchen Loves AnchorageAlaska Parent Magazine, Buzzfeed, Craftgawker,  Allfreeknitting.com,  Cut Out and Keep, CountryLiving.com and Allfreecrochet.com.

My background is in languages and journalism. I currently work full time as a communications coordinator for an economic development nonprofit. I was given a needle and thread at age 3, learned to knit by 6 and was building my thrift store wardrobe by age 12. At 14 I got my first job in the flower department of my local grocery store and floral design has been a part of my life ever since.

The heart of my household has always been the kitchen and I feel joy when three generations of my family are busy at work making sausages, salmon caviar and large batches of marinara sauce.
So have a poke around and let me know what you think! I welcome comments, questions and guest bloggers.

You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Love from the Last Frontier,

  1. I just happened upon your blog today and got ‘stuck’ on it for a while, finding all kinds of knitting patterns and enjoying your blog in general. Thanks!

  2. I want to make your Simply Striped Baby Blanket. It is so pretty and I want to make it for a baby boy. I would like to make it wider. Could you tell me the number of stitches for a repeat pattern so I could make it wider. I don’t know how to figure that and I am not a real experienced knitter. Your help would be much appreciated.

    1. Hi Peggy, unfortunately it’s been too long since I’ve made this blanket and I simply don’t remember how to expand it. Sorry I’m not able to help! -Natasha
