Our story beings all the way back on our founder Lucy's 8th birthday! This was the year Lucy was given her very first knitting kit from her Grandma Marge and it was in this moment her passion was born!
Over the years Grandma Marge taught Lucy to knit, a precious skill that had been passed down the family for generations. This was when Lucy realised the true value of preserving the art of knitting and sought to make it more accessible and understandable to all
Experimenting with creative and thoughtful Christmas gifts, Lucy decided to knit her four cousins a cushion emblazoned with the image of their faces... an extra special selfie! So she set about devising and testing concepts until she successfully turned their photographs into the very first KnitPic!
And so 'Knit It' was born from Lucy's idea to future proof the traditional craft, making it fun-filled, simple and user friendly. Since then Lucy has founded her company and successfully won funding, as well as industry-leading support to grow the ideas into an innovative startup!
The Knit It Vision is to be the place to go for ‘digital knitting patterns’ for a global community of knitters!
Nothing is more exciting than the spark of an idea! We want to empower individuals to be the best they can be and pursue their dreams
Can you picture anything more driven than a knitter eagerly whizzing through a project?! We want to foster a spirit of enjoyment and accomplishment in everything we do
We strive to make things the best they can be, and we do that by experimenting, testing and being unafraid of the unexpected. We will boldly go where no knitter has been before!
All creatives are that little bit weird... but that's what make us so unique! We let our artistic flair fly free and are unashamedly quirky in everything we do
We want to be compassionate and caring to people and the world around us.
