Hello, I’m Emma and I am a hand knitting designer with a passion for all aspects of knitting and design! My knitting patterns regularly feature in publications such as The Knitter Magazine, The Knitter Deutschland and Knitting magazine and I work with yarn companies including West Yorkshire Spinners, the Birlinn Yarn Company and Yarn Stories. I am the author of “A Knitter’s Sketchbook, Design Inspiration of Twisted Stitch and Cables”, published by the Crowood Press in January 2019 in the UK.
My design inspiration comes from both the natural world and the built environment. I love working with a wide variety of textures and cables that provide plenty of contrast in my knitting. I visit museums and galleries as often as I can and I am extremely proud to be a volunteer at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
You can find out more about my designs on my knitting blog, and now in my own little corner of the Deramores website, where i'm the proud owner of a designer shop:
