    Designer Zoe Potrac

    Zoe Potrac

    I‘m Zoë and I love designing crochet homewares and accessories in bright colours and learning new stitch patterns to test my skills. Crochet is my way to release all the creative energy in my brain out into the world! You can read more about my woolly adventures on my website at or find me on Instagram @zoepotrac. My latest designs are available at my lovely new designer shop at, and often in Crochet Now magazine.


    About Designer Jenny Watson

    My name is Jenny Watson and working as a freelance designer has allowed me greater flexibility to develop my own style and brand. My style is more contemporary and different from what was a traditional industry born out of economic necessity many years ago. Today with modern production techniques I am able to create individual yarns specifically constructed to my specifications using high quality yarns from around the world. Additionally I continue to work with a significant number of leading UK yarn companies and continue to produce a wide variety of designs for knitting leaflets and books. I hope you enjoy my enthusiasm for creative knitting!
