I design taxidermy inspired knitting patterns and kits. I launched my independent business in 2014, creating fun and modern designs from unicorn heads to giant tiger rugs. I have had three books published, and my most recent one is a learn-to-knit book called First Time Knits. Since I learnt to knit, 10 years ago, I have been passionate about craft and encouraging others to start knitting. There’s something very special about being a maker, and I love playing a part in people’s creative journeys by designing knitting patterns.
Knitting can sometimes be seen as old-fashioned, but I enjoy taking this medium and creating something contemporary with a ball of yarn and some knitting needles. This has led to collaborations with Clothes Show Live, Innocent Smoothies and the V&A.
