Join author and designer Tanis Gray for a chat about her newest knitting book, Knitting with Disney, The Official Disney Knitting Book! She’ll take you through the process of what it takes to make an official book with one of the most recognizable brands on the planet, as well as share with you how to do one of her favorite techniques, the Latvian Braid!
Here’s your homework if you’d like to try a Latvian Braid during the Chat: Gather some leftover bits of worsted or bulky weight yarn in two contrasting colors and corresponding 16” circular needle or DPN’s. Cast on enough stitches (in a multiple of 2) to join the round for your chosen needles. Work a few rounds in garter stitch [knit one round, purl one round, knit one round], then [k1 st in Color A, K1 st in color B] all the way across for rnd 1. Because we have limited time, please don’t use fingering weight or something teeny!


About Tanis:
A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Tanis lives in Northern VA with her Mechanical Engineer husband and two children.
With over 600 published knitting designs in her portfolio, her work has been featured in many major publications and books worldwide.  She is the author of more than 10 books, including Knitting the Galaxy: The Official Star Wars Knitting Pattern Book (2021, Insight Editions), the first and only official knitting book based on the original 9 Star Wars films by Lucasfilm and the soon-to-be released, Knitting with Disney (2021, Insight Editions) a book for Disney fans featuring projects from Mickey Mouse, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin. The Lion King, Pocahontas, Mulan, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Brave, Moana, and more.

 It is her goal to help anyone who wants to learn how to knit accomplish their fiber goals. She is also a firm believer in using bright colors in knitting and wholeheartedly agrees with Ru Paul, who said, “Life is about using the whole box of crayons.”

 Tanis believes that we are stronger together. When we respect each other, listen, learn, and educate, we can lift each other up and thrive as humans.  
She is a proud member and volunteer webmaster of the Creative Knitter’s Guild, Martha Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and the Washington DC Chapter of the Mayflower Society. She volunteers at Sanctuary for Families, Project Knitwell, and local Scouts troops teaching crafts and knitting. Certain pattern proceeds are donated to The National Center for Transgender Equality, The Trevor Project, NAACP, The Union of Concerned Scientists, Doctors Without Borders, Friends of Notre Dame, and Project Semicolon.
