Our fea­tured de­sign­ers

The Knitter - - Content -

Pat Strong

Pat learnt her knit­ting and cro­chet skills from her grand­mother, and loves to pass on her knowl­edge to oth­ers through her pat­terns, which she cre­ates for mag­a­zines in­clud­ing Sim­ply Knit­ting and Sim­ply Cro­chet. Her first de­sign for us is a fun Fair Isle dress, on page 8.

Jo Allport

As well as de­sign­ing for yarn brands such as Noro, Lo­tus, West York­shire Spin­ners and Arau­ca­nia, Jo sells her own pat­terns through Ravelry, and also cre­ates projects for many of the UK’s knit­ting mag­a­zines. Her del­i­cate jumper with lace de­tails can be found on page 47.

Amanda Jones

With her pas­sion for tex­ture, Amanda cre­ates beau­ti­ful de­signs that cel­e­brate the end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties of the knit­ted stitch. This month, we have a stun­ning shawl, which com­bines colour, lace and brioche, as well as an in­ter­view with Amanda. Find it all in our spe­cial pull-out sup­ple­ment.
