Our Story


Tricksy Knitter is the brainchild of Megan Goodacre and Charles Jaimet. Megan is responsible for designing, knitting, and ranting, and Charles takes care of all things technical and most of the heavy lifting. They don’t always agree about who does most of the cooking (it’s Megan) but there’s no doubt that Tricksy Knitter is a team effort.

As a programmer (Charles) and designer (Megan), they had made a lot of websites, but one day thought it was about time they work on a personal project, just for fun. Charles had the digital chops and social media savvy to get Tricksy Knitter plugged in. Megan had the creative expertise and tireless appetite for yarn required to make the patterns and write the articles.

One rollercoaster ride and several thousand yards of yarn later, here we are, in Ottawa, with a growing library of knitting patterns, a huge how-to-knit section, a couple of books, an exclusive line of knitting accessories, and an online chartmaker.
