Meet The Knitcraft Ambassadors
The Knitcraft ambassadors are a dedicated group of makers that love to create amazing patterns and share them with the Knitcraft community and the world. You love to see their creations on Instagram and now you can learn a bit more about them…
Each month the ambassadors will be creating new projects for you and will be trying out all of our new yarns so you know you are picking the right yarn for your project.
Emily from @make.e
Hi I’m Emily, I’m a modern crochet designer from East Sussex. I have been crafty all my life, having tried most crafts, I taught myself to crochet about 8 years ago now. It wasn’t until I had my 2 little girls that my crochet skills stepped up and I don’t think I have put my hook down since. My style is forever evolving but I do tend to lean towards Scandi simple design with a boho twist. I am not adverse to a pompom or two, and I love to add fringing and tassels whenever the opportunity arises. I like to keep my designs fun and simple, in my mind crochet should be fun from start to finish and wherever I can I like to make my patterns quick to crochet up.

Tiam from @knitsafari
I’m Tiam Safari (of @knitsafari) and I am a London-based yarn hoarder and knitwear and crochet designer. I love to work with all types and weights of fibres, and definitely love any yarn with a sparkle or sheen. I’m a fibre magpie! I’m currently working with a lot of chunky knits, and I am absolutely in love with all the hazy fluffy mohair and faux-mohair yarns available at the moment! I work as a freelance knitwear designer for a variety of global yarn brands, and my work has been featured on Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas, Elle Belgium and Vogue Australia.

Kim from @nowaycrochet
Hello! My name is Kim and I design and make my own crochet garments for Nowaycrochet. I love using chunky materials and also like to include any vintage yarn I have collected over the years. Cardigans and jumpers are my absolute favourite, and most of my ideas start off with the sleeves. I love using stand-out colour and texture, and always enjoy seeing people wear my makes. A few of my garments featured in fashion editorial shoots last year, and i’m really excited to start taking commissions and selling my pieces.
