My name is Jem Weston and I am a freelance designer, author and workshop tutor with a passion to inspire everyone to knit!

My affection for knitting began at a young age when my Grandma taught me to knit, and it grew into an addiction during my time at university studying Fine Art. My sculpture and installations were often inspired by traditional crafts and I began to find knitting a wonderful way to relax.

I am the author of Cute Comfort Knits and The Knitted Nursery Collection, both of which are available from my online shop, alongside a variety of kits and yarn packs. Or if you prefer individual patterns – have a peek at my patterns page!

Having worked closely with Rowan yarns since 2008, firstly as the Rowan Design Consultant Manager and then as a Coats Crafts Territory Manager, I now work part-time as a Rowan Account Manager. This allows me to travel the north of England, sharing my passion for yarn with lovely independent Rowan stockists and teaching workshops. I love passing on new techniques to knitters and encouraging new people to get started. You can find more information on my workshops here.

Happy knitting!
