about us

Let’s expand the knit community together through teaching, gathering & making. 
Together, we can change lives one stitch at a time!

Amanda Kaffka learned to knit on arbutus twigs when she was six and hasn’t looked up since. She has been caught knitting at traffic lights, cafés and beaches, but her backyard is her favorite place to knit alongside her husband and Kitty.  Always knitting, never waiting, you won't catch Amanda without a project or two in her purse!

With a fashion design degree from Ryerson University she has a passion for knitwear design and teaching. With a no-rules-in-knitting approach but high standards for excellence Amanda’s passion is to guide students to knit freely with solid technique.
The Crafty Jackalope features Amanda Kaffka's simple to knit, stunning to wear knit & crochet designs,  in easy downloadable PDF's and as kits {yarn & pattern}.

New kits & patterns will be featured weekly, so be sure to visit us often to get inspired! 

In addition, over the years we have tested, used and tried many knitting tools, notions, accessories, and project bags, The Crafty Jackalope offers a curated collection of our favorites!
