Welcome to Ilga Leja Handknit Design!

I am a knitwear designer based in Nova Scotia, although my roots extend from Latvia to Newfoundland. My work is characterized by classic silhouettes, unique construction, and playful use of stitch patterns.

My most recent pattern is Wildflower Garden, part of the Mythic Forest Collection.
