Who We Are

Meet the Kelly Girls

We are a Chicago-based knitting group, made up of students and young professionals (we welcome Kelly Boys, too!). We provide informal lessons in knitting, crochet, and anything else we've managed to learn. We also organize field trips, events, and even crafty retreats throughout the year.

How did the Kelly Girls get started?

The Kelly Girls were founded by Hilary Kraus, a crafty librarian and Chicago native, as a way of connecting with the many creative women the city has to offer. She has since moved on to Providence, Rhode Island, where she hopes to meet other knitters as excellent as the Kelly Girls.  The group has been meeting since 2003!
