Gayle Roehm
Gayle Roehm has been teaching knitters across the country how to enjoy Japanese knitting and crochet designs. Gayle majored in Japanese studies, speaks Japanese, and lived in Japan. She began to teach knitting after a long career as a management consultant focusing on development consulting, and worked in many countries all over the world. An avid knitter throughout her career, she has been using Japanese patterns for many years.

Her own designs have been featured in Knitter’s magazine, Interweave Knits, A Gathering of Lace, and other publications. She also sells original designs through a local fiber arts gallery. Her article about Japanese patterns appeared in Knitter’s in 1997, and was one of the first to appear in English on the topic. She also prepared the Japanese section for the book Knitting Languages, and for several years translated Japanese patterns for Dancing Fibers (now Sunrise Yarns/Diakeito).
