My mum taught me to knit in 2008 after I saw someone knitting when I visited a friend at university. If I hadn’t had my mum to teach me and give me my first knitting book, then I probably would have never started. Then a little later I asked my mum to show me to crochet because I wanted to make cute little amigurumi makes.

Knitting and Crochet has changed my life and helped me to become the person that I am today. Knitting taught me patience. Knitting showed me I could design. Crochet taught me that I can learn something new.  Crafting helped me to find purpose when I was facing depression and anxiety,  and helped me to relax when nothing else would. I have loved creating unique items for the people in my life and for myself.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to take up knitting or crochet, know this, it will change your life in one way or another and I am so excited to bring fibre into your life!



Private Lessons – Knitting and Crochet

One to one lessons are the best way to learn to knit or crochet as the sessions will be taken at your pace and you will have me to help you with every stitch.


Prices are per hour and paid in person at the start of the session in cash. If you prefer to pay by PayPal let me know when you book, I am working on setting up my website so you can pay that way.


£20 – with materials provided to get you started, one crochet hook or knitting needles and a ball of yarn
£15 – without materials

Intermediate / advanced

£15 – without materials


Until 4 September 2017, I can only teach at the weekends or on Monday or Wednesday evenings. From 4 September onwards I can teach during the day on weekdays.


To book a private lesson with me email me on knittwittowo@gmail.com with your phone number, what you want to learn and  what your level is beginner /  intermediate / advanced.

The lessons will take place in a cafe in Westbourne where we can buy coffee and cake while we craft.



Group Lessons

I am looking into arranging group learning sessions, more information on this to follow. Please email me if you would be interested in this. For group sessions I would charge £15 for two hours for up to four people.
