Yarn Happy - Bead Happy


Hi! I'm Diane L. Augustin, 
and I am Yarn Happy - Bead Happy!

Thanks for your interest! My passions are Knitting, 
Bead Knitting, Crocheting and Pattern Designing.

Drawing on many years of graphic arts experience in the publishing world, many years of knitting and crocheting and my love for all things fiber and bead, I joyfully explore yarn, stitch and bead relationships and construction techniques, composing unique designs along with patterns to share with fiber artisans.

I am the photographer and page layout artist for my patterns, which contain clear instructions and many views of each project. I also provide back up support should there be any questions, along with suggestions for yarn substitutions in many of the designs. My goal is to produce patterns for pieces that will be a joy to make. 

Some of my patterns are featured in the Fiber Art Almanac for 2013, published by Wildwood Press.

My designs are also published in the Knitting: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013 Day-to-Day Calendar as well as Crochet: 100+ Patterns Throughout the Year: 2013 & 2014 Day-to-Day Calendar.

I am a knitting, crochet and bead knitting instructor, teaching classes based on my and other designs at local yarn shops and art centers in  the Minneapolis/St. Paul and St. Croix River Valley area. 

I hope my designs and classes will become your favorites. 
I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy! 

Please Enjoy!
