Barbara Benson Classes

Despite the fact that Sarasota, FL doesn’t have ideal knitwear weather, Barbara
loves living and knitting in the South. Self-proclaimed as “a bit silly and a bit nerdy”,
this often translates into her designs. When it comes to the art world, her love for
the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements shines through with intricate stitch work
and swooping shapes.

When not knitting she can frequently be found sailing or playing video games. Author of two books: Mosaic Lace Knits: 20 Innovated Patterns Combining Slip-Stitch Colorwork and Lace Techniques and Big Yarn, Beautiful Lace Knits: 20 Shawls, Hats, Ponchos, and More in Bulky Yarn, she also has an extensive catalog of both independently published patterns and patterns in curated knitting publications. 

More information about Barbara and her designs can be found on her website at If video is more your thing check out the fun and educational videos on her YouTube channel Watch Barbara Knit
