Collection: Ariel Gardner

Ariel Gardner has been knitting for over 20 years, and she’s taught knitting classes throughout the St. Louis area since 2008. This is her third year with the Festival, and we are so excited for her to bring her knitting expertise!

She always has a pair of socks on her needles, is known for knitting while hiking, and she loves playing with color and texture in her knits. Besides knitting, she dabbles in spinning, weaving, crochet, embroidery, sewing, needle felting, and watercolors. You can follow her on Instagram at @knitarielknit to see what she’s currently working on.
