Hello I'm Claire the face behind Verily Knits. I live in north Essex with my soon to be husband and our two boys. I'm lucky to live in an area that I love with amazing countryside and the coast within easy reach, over 200 years ago this locale was inspiring artists like Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable so I'm sure you can understand why much of my work is inspired by my local landscape.
For the past 10 years I have been obsessed with knitting, this obsession with all things yarn soon turned into a passion for designing knitwear. My knitting pattern designs started out simple with basic hats and accessories but my focus has gradually evolved and my patterns now range from fun decorations to more complex stranded colourwork garments.
As well as all of my self published patterns available on Ravelry you can find my work in Knitty, Knit Now and I Like Knitting, I have also designed patterns for Willow Yarns and Knit Picks.
I love to support independent yarn dyers, if you are interested in a future potential collaboration then please do get in touch.
