MAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL
Enjoy the relaxing process of knitting or crocheting to make something truly special.
“The tranquil rhythm of knitting has the ability to soothe the soul, refresh the mind, and construct a more intentional practice toward a slower, centered, more mindful life."
- Sierra, Creative Director
We are Darling Jadore, a team of creatives selling original, modern, digital instantly-downloadable knitting patterns and crochet patterns, video tutorials, and more. The owner and Creative Director is Sierra (photo above), but Darling Jadore also consists of various test-knitters, pattern editors, technical assistants, and videographers who all help make us a success. We're located in Colorado, USA.
Sierra is responsible for designing and writing every knitting pattern and crochet pattern that we sell here at Darling Jadore. Most of her designs begin as drawn sketches, which eventually turn into charts, schematics, and written text for the final product: a digital, instantly-downloadable knitting or crochet pattern file. Sierra has more than two decades worth of experience knitting and crocheting, has received training in sewing and embroidery, and also worked as a high fashion model in New York City, where her interest in fashion design deepened. As an independent knitwear designer, Sierra sells all of her patterns under her own label, i.e., Darling Jadore, as well as offers licensing rights for her patterns to some companies worldwide. As a licensed attorney, Sierra made a career change to follow her passion in knitwear design full-time in 2018.
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES US
We take a modern approach to knitting patterns and crochet patterns. All our patterns are instantly-downloadable digital files that are emailed immediately after payment is processed to the email address provided at checkout.
All our patterns are premium digital files that were specifically designed with aesthetics in mind to look highly modern, be exceptionally user-friendly, and easy to print. We go above and beyond to include not only the necessary information within the pattern, but other helpful resources. For example, inside each Darling Jadore pattern, we provide a "Stitch Glossary". This is a glossary containing all the abbreviations and techniques required of the pattern that are linked to corresponding video tutorials demonstrating how to work the stitch or technique. All of our patterns have been tested, and we continually update and re-test all of our patterns annually. We pride ourselves on designing patterns that can be made with affordable, easy-to-source yarn. We also have a wonderful team of technology specialists on standby weekdays to assist our customers with any tech-related issues.
All our patterns include highly-detailed written instructions, a schematic with precise measurements, links to tutorials for reference, links to all the exact materials used in the photographed design, numerous tips, and more. As per industry standard, we also include all the basic elements of a knit and crochet pattern such as gauge, sizing information, yarn weight/category, information on adapting the pattern, abbreviations used, information on how to read our patterns and more. We go above and beyond what is required and/or the typical industry standard and do our absolute best to ensure that the entire experience -- from shopping to checkout to download to knitting or crocheting -- is as enjoyable for our customers as possible.
integrity & INVOLVEMENT
We believe that our integrity as a knitwear and crochetwear design business sets us apart from other designers. Darling Jadore never accepts free products in exchange for reviews or for a social media post. The Darling Jadore team feels that this conduct inherently elicits bias and dilutes the integrity and transparency we believe in and constantly strive toward as a business. Therefore, if you ever see specific yarn, tools, or other materials appear on a Darling Jadore social media account or in the Darling Jadore Amazon shop, it was never sent to us for free; rather, it is a product we truly love and use. Likewise, we have never and would never send a person, business, or company one of our knitting patterns, crochet patterns, or merchandise items for free in exchange for a review, feature, social media post, or blog post. We occasionally will work with companies and people that we truly believe in and who share a similar vision as us. Sometimes we accept sponsorships from brands, but again, we only endorse brands and products that we truly believe in and whose products we use and love, and generally purchase ourselves
Darling Jadore is also a proud supporter of various non-profit, charitable organizations and donate a proceed of certain patterns to such organizations. For example, half of all proceeds from The Classic Teddy crochet pattern goes directly to the ASPCA, a leader in animal rescue and protection. Darling Jadore is an official Business Ambassador for the ASPCA and we are thrilled for this partnership and the opportunity to support such a wonderful organization. Likewise, we donate a portion of our proceeds from our eco-friendly knitting patterns and crochet patterns to The Nature Conservancy, one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world.
