A Note From Kristi:
Hi! I am married to Jason and we have 5 great children: Jacob, Kimberly, Allison, James and Ryan…. they keep us on our toes! We started our business as RAKJpatterns and our kid’s initials is where the original name came from: R.A.K.J. We believe in family first!

As much as I like to design, I love to teach others how to pick up a hook or set of needles, be creative, and turn their yarn into something functional, fun & beautiful!
