Dog cuddling, knitflixing, and drinking red wine are just a few of Amy’s favorite things to do (and often does all of these at the same time). She does a variety of freelance work including design, crochet and knit charting, technical editing, and more. Find her on Instagram as @amyyounggunderson.
Fun FactI've always loved vintage clothing, and I try to incorporate elements of fun into each piece I design.
Knitting TipGet comfortable with frogging. The fastest way to learn is by making (and trying to fix) a mistake, and then having to start over. Plus, you'll never be afraid to try a new project or new technique!
I live in Paris where I started designing knitwear after studying History and History of Arts. Crafts are for me a family tradition, my grandmother was a professional seamstress and I learned to knit from my mother. Knitting is a way for me to connect with my heritage while creating something truly unique. Using natural yarns, I design highly wearable accessories and garments with interesting textures and colorwork. My patterns have been published in Pom Pom Quarterly, Knit Picks and Knit Now and I also have a collection of self-published patterns available through Ravelry. My goal is to inspire knitters in their creative journey, to give them the means to progress in their craft and to make knits they will love and wear with pride for a very long time.
