Hello!

I'm a knitted textile designer specialising in high-end, fine gauge knitted accessories. I use a big and beautiful Italian knitting machine to create all my pieces, taking inspiration from traditional dress, geometric shapes, and the machine itself.

I use the best quality yarns, sourced from Italian and UK mills, making each piece feel as good as it looks!

Whilst studying for a Textile Design degree at Birmingham City University (former UCE), I found my first true love, a knitting machine! My final major project of machine knitted light coverings caught the eye of a Nottingham based swatch company, who saw my potential and hired me as a full time swatch designer.

I learned invaluable skills in stitch development and fabric design, as well as broadening my knowledge of yarns and trends. During my time at the swatch company I sold many of my pieces to high street retailers through to high end designers such as Julien McDonald, John Varvatos and Calvin Klein.

After leaving Nottingham for adventures in Liverpool, I bought my very own machine, sourced some great yarns from Italy and the UK, and started up my own little home studio.

Now in Lancashire, I design and make knitted accessories for my own range - Amy Lawrence Designs. Read Less
