Anniken Allis

Welcome to my pattern page.

IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION REGARDING A PATTERN PLEASE E-MAIL ME ON ahallis@yahoo.co.uk. I am very slow to respond to Ravelry messages

I have been regularly published in a variety of knitting and crochet magazines in the UK, the US & Germany (Vogue Knitting, Debbie Bliss Magazine, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knitting Traditions (Interweave), The Unofficial Downton Abbey Knits (Interweave), Knit Simple (Soho), Let’s Knit, The Knitter, Simply Knitting, Knitting, Interweave Crochet, Simply Crochet, Inside Crochet and Verena) as well as regularly designing for yarn companies including Artesano, Fyberspates, West Yorkshire Spinners, Sweet Georgia, Juniper Moon Farm, Quince & Co, Alpaca Select and The Little Knitting Company.

I’m currently working on my first book which will be published by Stackpole Books in early 2015.

I have also contributed to several books: Classic Elite: Shawls, Wraps & Scarves and ’60 Quick Luxury Knits’ published by Sixth & Springs Books and the Scrumptious Collection Volume 2 by Fyberspates (both published in January 2013).

I am considered one of the UK’s leading lace designers and learnt to knit as a young child while growing up in Norway. My designs feature a variety of techniques including lace, cables and fair isle and I’m well known for my beautiful lace shawls as well as garments.

Since 2006, I’ve been teaching workshops at yarn shops and national shows in the UK. My workshops cover a variety of lace techniques, sock knitting, cables, steeking, continental knitting, fair isle/stranded knitting, short rows, finishing techniques and much more. For a list of current workshops please click here. I also teach online workshops.

I’ve lived in Cornwall since I moved to the UK in1990 and I’m married with 2 teenage daughters. As well as knitting, I enjoy crocheting, spinning and sewing/quilting.

I run YarnAddict which stocks luxury yarn & yarn clubs.

Stop by my blog to read more about my yarn addiction and my life.

Happy knitting,
