My name is Cristina. I am a knitwear designer based in Italy. My main focus is developing my independent line Minimi Knit Design. Occasionally, I collaborate with third party publications to reach a wider audience. My designs have appeared in Brooklyn Tweed Wool People and Knit Pick’s collections.

My main interest is designing functional and wearable knitwear. It does not mean that it has to plain and boring! Browse my catalog of knitting patterns here.

My pattern writing philosophy is to keep it simple. My patterns are organized with printer friendliness in mind, images are not interspersed with pattern text. Essential techniques are explained in the pattern so that you will not need to look up anything on the internet during your knitting. Special techniques and photo tutorials are given at the end of the pattern so that you can easily skip printing them.

I want you to be happy with my patterns and knit with joy. If you are stuck in a project, come join my Ravelry group for help or use the Pattern Support contact form.

If you like my designs, sign up for the newsletter so that you will not miss out on new pattern releases or promotions.

Happy Knitting!

Warmest wishes,



Find me as Minimi on Ravelry.com.
