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, my husband and 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. And hang out with my husband without yarn in the same room.

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!

Pattern Support
For questions related to any patterns published by Universal Yarn, please direct these to: patterns@universalyarn.com

For questions related to any of my self-published patterns, please feel free to contact me directly at kinglouiespizza@gmail.com

For questions regarding any other third party pattern - though I will try to help you if I’m able, ultimately the pattern support falls back to that publication (in most instances). Please understand that I am only one person :)
