Rita Taylor

Traditional knits, fishermen's ganseys, Fair Isles and Arans a speciality. Items in all sizes from 1/12 miniatures to XXL. I also crochet and specialise in wedding and christening dresses. I have designed and made pieces for film and TV and have written a number of books on different types of knitting including vintage knits, Aran, Ganseys and Scandinavian knits. I run the North Norfolk Branch of the Knitting & Crochet Guild where I teach all aspects of knitting and crochet and am involved in compiling a database of knitted ganseys for Sheringham Museum. I also run workshops at the Museum on designing and knitting a gansey.
