WhAt's NEW


Welcome to LMB Designs, the home of knitting patterns and knitting classes by Lisa M. Barnes.

I am a Craft Yarn Council Certified Teacher and enjoy teaching students of all ages and skill levels.

My passion for teaching began as a teenager when I taught beginning piano students at my mother’s studio. I have been teaching knitting since 2008, and currently teach at Michaels craft stores, the Lion Brand Yarn Studio and Outlet, local yarn shops, and events around the country.

My most recent design, a knit crescent-shaped lace shawl, appears on the cover of the current Spring/Summer 2016 edition of Noro Magazine. My designs have been published by Universal Yarn and Kreinik Threads, and featured in Noro Knitting Magazine, Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street Collections, and Creative Knitting Magazine.

“Adventures in Knitting” is my new series of fiber tours, video tutorials, and online classes. I will guide you on your knitting journey to explore your creativity and interpret your stitches. I will help you learn new techniques, translate the “knitting language” in your patterns, learn to fix your own mistakes, and inspire you to create unique projects that you love!
