Welcome to Bonita Patterns! Bonita means pretty in my first language, Portuguese, so I thrive to create, surprise, surprise... beautiful designs. My goal is to write patterns that are easy and clear to read that artisans at any level can enjoy trying them out. I usually find it hard to define a skill level for patterns; the skill levels I list in my patterns are merely subjective assumptions of mine. I believe that even when you consider yourself a beginner, someday, a particular pattern is so cool looking that will strike your courage to try something harder. By the way, I had barely learned how to knit and purl, when I found the gumption to try a huge knitted lace shawl pattern. Granted, it took me quite a few tears of frustration, but once I saw the magnificence of the finished lace blocked, there was no turning back. I hope you enjoy my creations and visit my shops on Etsy or Ravelry often. There are never too much yarn or too many patterns to play with our craft.
