Amy Gunderson

I work as the yarn director for Jimmy Beans. I also do freelance knit & crochet design. I’m also available for crochet & knit chart making, schematics, tech editing, and other assorted pattern related things. I worked as the creative director of Universal Yarn for 6 years, through March of 2019.

Before that, I owned a pizza place in Iowa City, IA for 7 years. This is where I learned to knit - in between pizza making.

I knit and crochet constantly, wish I had time to sew again, and dream of unpacking my poor, neglected loom. Occasionally I find the time to play tennis and walk the dog.

Other hobbies include motorcycle riding, violin, dog cuddling, and being a smart ass. I also enjoy a good death stare.

Please feel free to join the Amy Gunderson Designs to discuss any of my patterns. I’m here to help!
