One way to describe her could be “a super crocheter/knitter.” Her work is out of this world amazing and she is always making and creating. I don’t think she would go a day without whipping up some sort of gigantic masterpiece. She is also a pattern extraordinaire, & we might just be her biggest fans.

@theknitter // New Zealand

She might just be the cutest knitter on the scene right now. She is a humble, passionate maker setting a lovely tone for the craft industry. Her work is innovative, edgy and just damn beautiful. If you have a look at her instagram feed you will find out very fast what her favourite colour is, and it’s probably ours too. Not only are her creations stunning, but how she models and photographs them are just as gorgeous. Be sure to grab one of her pieces if you ever get the chance.

@pony.mctate // New Zealand

She’s quirky, vibrant, and passionate about crochet. She makes all sorts of inspiring creations a lot of them being soft toys that in one way or another come to life! She’s a little bit of sunshine on a rainy day and is a creative genius, she was also the mastermind behind our Christmas Wreaths that were selling like hot potatoes last year, we adore her work.

@talia_vanderwell // New Zealand

Our very own Talia is of course someone you need to know. Not only is she mad about knitting, but she’s mad about all things crafty. She spins yarn, dyes textiles, paints, sews, makes patterns and the long list continues – along side all of her awe-inspiring makings she’s a super mom, she home schools her darling daughters too! What can’t Talia do? We have been trying to figure this out for a while now, but we can’t seem to find an answer.

@theforeverfarmhouse // AUSTRALIA

You'll either find her with needles/hook in hand or in the garden foraging her produce. In her own words she's a "cherisher of simple everyday moments" & ain't that true. One look at her instagram and you'll find yourself halfway down the road driving to the closest farm. Her makings are simply marvelous and you can't help but keep scrolling through her peaceful and engaging photos.

@catchtheinspiration // Germany

She has the feed of your dreams – every single post on her instagram is jaw droppingly gorgeous – not to mention her creations, they are like no other! Every item is the kind you instantly want in your home. Majority of her work is embroidery, though her knitting is still one to watch! Note: don’t look at her gram if you’re hungry because it will make your mouth water.
