Hello and welcome - here you'll find my patterns, tutorials, tips and tricks to help make your projects perfect.
My name is Lynne Rowe and I'm a freelance knitting and crochet designer, technical editor and author. I can't imagine a day without picking up my needles or hook and creating something fab and funky.
I design simple and stylish knitting and crochet projects which are perfect for using up odd balls of yarn and reducing wastage, or great for using up that gorgeous skein of yarn you've been saving for something special. My previous environmental career is still close to my heart and I reuse and recycle yarns as much as possible, whilst keeping my waste yarns to a minimum.
I design for many UK knitting magazines and publications, including Let's Get Crafting, Let's Knit, Inside Crochet and Woman's Weekly, and I'm a columnist for Crochet Now. I also teach knit and crochet locally in Cheshire, as I feel it's really important to pass these skills on. I love to see my students feeling proud and amazed at their achievements.
My dream is to design a huge library of knit and crochet patterns, to write articles for magazines and to publish books. It's a slow process, and really hard work, but I'll get there in the end.
I've authored four knitting and crochet titles, including "Fun Hats"; "Once Upon a Time in Crochet"; 20 to make Crochet Mandalas" and "Knit Yourself Calm" which is due out in May 2017. I'm slowly updating my patterns on Ravelry, Love Knitting and in my Etsy shop, so feel free to take a look. Lynne Rowe on Ravelry Lynne Rowe on Love Knitting Lynne Rowe on Etsy
I hope my patterns inspire you to be creative or to learn a new skill, but be warned - knitting and crochet is addictive!!!
