Claire Crompton's Profile

About

Hello, welcome to my Etsy shop.

I come from a textiles background, studied knitwear design at college and have worked in both knitting and embroidery design over the years.

So now I design and publish knitting and crochet patterns, which I hope will challenge and inspire you. I use techniques such as modular knitting and entrelac to create accessories, that are interesting to knit.

I particularly enjoy passing on my knowledge of knitting and crochet techniques through my patterns and also through teaching workshops.

I also design cross stitch charts, in different styles, some mythical, some folksy, some fun, some cute.

I'm inspired by colours, yarn, threads, fabrics; I love textiles in all its forms…

I've worked with publishers over the years and written knitting books (including The Knitter's Bible, and Stitch Library), crochet books (Stitch Library) and cross stitch books (Christmas Cross Stitch, Picture Your Pet in Cross Stitch and Naughty but Nice).
