Amy Solovay

I am a professional textile designer, pattern designer, writer and educator.

I invite you to sign up for my free knitting and crochet newsletter to receive updates about my patterns and tutorials, plus all the other interesting knitting and crochet news I find.

I make a special edition of my newsletter available for pattern designers, craft book authors, bloggers and website owners, for the purpose of sharing promotional opportunities that are available through my websites and other sources. So if you design patterns, write about knitting / crochet, or have an indie yarn business, please do sign up. Be sure to include the relevant details at signup so that you will be opted into the special edition of the newsletter.

Please be aware that my Ravelry portfolio does not include all my pattern designs -- not even close to all of them. If you would like to find my latest patterns, tutorials, and articles, I recommend checking the news section of my website.

Previous Work:

I spent 5 years managing the crochet site for About.com (back when it was owned by the New York Times Company.) Before that, I worked as a textile designer and design department manager for textile companies in the fashion and home furnishings industries. In addition to crochet and knitting patterns, I have designed knits, prints, wovens and embroideries. I also taught college-level textile design and trend forecasting classes. I’m a design school graduate with a major in textile design. I also have a liberal arts degree.

Thank you so much for your interest in my work. I really appreciate it.
