Alison Ellen

I have run a small business designing and making hand knits for 35 years, dyeing my yarns. I also short courses in the UK and abroad, and have published 4 books on designing in knitting. My interest in both designing and teaching is to explore how the stitches work, and how different stitches can shape fabric and create garments knitted without seams, to suit different people and to be a pleasure to wear. I encourage students to have confidence to make their own designs.
