Emma Osmond was originally taught to knit and crochet by her grandmother, and this wonderful skill has become her career. It was in the haberdashery department at Liberty of London that her love of yarn was established. There she enjoyed teaching beginners’ knitting and crochet classes, which gave people the opportunity to take a handmade item home with them at the end of the day. Now Emma creates beautiful patterns that are inspiring and enable you to use your newly learned skills in different ways.
