From Our Knithub


"I switched to the continental style of knitting to loosen my gauge. It worked too well. When I finished these cuff-down socks, the first sock was much larger than the second. I unravelled the big one and reknit it. Now they are perfect. It just took a while for my hands to get used to the new method and for my tension to settle and even out. Thank you for a fun pattern, Carol! I'm sure I'll knit these again and again. Now on to the toe-up version - I've finished the toe of the first one..."

Meet Your Teacher


Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit.

She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.

Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
