Meet the founders
Hey there! We are the husband and wife team, Ryan and Mahala, founders of Patternosity! We met in 2014 and got married in 2018. We both have a love for web design, dinosaurs, chocolate, and all things purple! We have two beautiful daughters and we live in Little Rock Arkansas.
In 2016 We stumbled into the world of pattern design. After releasing a couple of patterns, we began to rethink the stressful pattern testing process. After talking together, we toyed with the idea of starting a site dedicated to pattern testing.
As time went on, we saw crochet and knit patterns gain popularity as more makers ventured out and created their own designs. There was an increasing need for makers to have a set place to get advice, create together, share their patterns, and collaborate with like-minded yarn friends.
Our original idea eventually evolved into us creating a social network for pattern designers, and from there, Patternosity was born.
