About Ravin


I’m Rachel. Hi!

@ravinsekaidesigns on Social Media

I’m a world traveller, avid knitter, unashamed hooker, pattern maker, and all around nerd! This is the landing place for my new patterns, random thoughts, and general craziness. I hope you enjoy my randomness and my yarnie goodness!

I’m a USA native, but I’ve lived most of my adult life outside of my home country! When I finished college, bright eyed and bushy tailed, I moved directly to Japan to start my adventures as an English teacher. After living there for 7 years and meeting my wonderful husband, we ended up moving back to the US for a short period of time. But, we didn’t stay long! My husband pretty quickly got a job in Canada and dragged me along for the ride.

Presently, we live in the great city of Montreal! I’m still struggling with learning French, but we’re making a good go of it!

Now, it gives me a lot more time to plot my yarn empire and create as much as I want! I hope you can enjoy the fruits of my labor and come to love my creations as much as I do!



About my Patterns

I have a real passion for designing new knitted or crocheted garments and I love sharing them with the world. I usually provide those patterns for free, because I want everyone to have easy access to something they love. However, creating patterns also takes a lot of work! So, along with the free pattern, I provide a link for where you can find a more detailed ad free version for purchase. These ad free versions will also come with more pictures and often times a detailed chart. Please, if at all possible, feed the yarn monster in me so I can keep creating the patterns I so very much love!
