Recognized as one of the top 10 most influential men in the world of knitting, Barry is a past president of the National Needlework Association and has designed patterns for Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, and Knitters Magazine, among many others. A prolific author, his books include The Ultimate Knitted Tee, Knitting with Novelty Yarns and The Knitters Template, all co-authored with Laura Militzer Bryant.
