Shannon & Jason Mullett-Bowlsby


Shannon and Jason are the DIY duo known as the Shibaguyz behind the design studio of Shibaguyz Designz and Shibaguyz Photography. 
Shannon's award winning crochet & knit designs have been featured in and on the covers of both US and international publications and he currently has over 300 published patterns credited to his name since his first design was featured on the cover of a magazine in 2010.  Shannon has been teaching adults for 20+ years and is a Craft Yarn Council certified instructor. His quirky sense of humor and relatable teaching style have made him a sought after teacher in both local and national venues. 
Jason is a professional fashion and portrait photographer whose fashion photography can be seen in many of the Shibaguyz’ pattern books. Jason also works as a freelance book-packaging designer and photographer for indie knitwear designers as well as major publishing companies like Sterling Publishing, Leisure Arts, Quayside, and Creative Publishing. Jason is known for his candid style of photography in his portrait work and is sought after in the fiber arts community for his insights into what it takes to show an artist's work at its best. 
Shannon and Jason live in Seattle, Washington with their three Shiba Inu who, more or less, support their ventures as long as enough time is taken for walks and treats. 
Shibaguyz Designz has proudly been featured on the covers of 10 magazines and featured in articles in industry magazines in the US and abroad. The duo has released around 300 patterns since that first cover design in 2010 in magazines like Crochet! Magazine, Creative Knitting, Crochet Today, Interweave Crochet, Noro Knitting Magazine, and Crochet World; and yarn companies like Tahki Stacy Charles, Noro, Mango Moon, Buffalo Wool, Bijou Basin Ranch, Red Heart, and Lion Brand. 
Shibaguyz Designz have also published 8 books of crochet and knitwear patterns with their most current book, Crochet Geometry, releasing March 1, 2016 from Sterling/Lark Publishing. Their pattern books specialize in patterns that fit a wide range of sizes from size small through 5X.
