Amy Hall – East London Knitwear Designer

In our never ending search through fashion magazines, catalogues and on the web for new ideas that we can translate into knitwear designs, I recently came across Amy Hall – a designer from East London.  Her fashion sense, feminine styling and crisp attention to detail is timeless yet fresh and innovative. With a background in photography, Amy’s presentation and images are simple and appealing.  Superior from Filatura di Crosa definitely comes to mind for a few of these pieces!

“Now, more than ever, I feel that wool has a central part to play in fashion.  In an increasingly synthetic industry, it is the best renewable fibre we have. It is important to use natural yarns where possible and if wool is properly looked after, it will last you a lifetime. It keeps you warm, it’s versatile, comfortable – it’s simply a wonderful fibre to work with.”  –  Amy Hall

Following are a few designs from her new collection and to see more, click here.

I love the super bulky sleeveless sweater! I’d add sleeves and wear it a lot here in San Francisco. If you ever write a pattern for that….let me know! Small size please is my wish to the pattern wizard.

These designs are fabulous. Is there a pattern book or catalogue available for purchase?

that would be great to be able to make a few patterns from these, or somewhat similar

do you do other patterns? many years ago i made a sweater i loved, but lost the pattern, i think it was a magazine. it was a pullover sweater, in a somewhat bulky knit, cream color was the pattern. it had 3 buttons down the front and a collar. also it had a yoke that was k1p1 to look like pleats/smock and long sleeves. i have been looking for something similar, it was a great pattern and i think others would love it too. i could probably come up with it but wondered if you ever ran across something like it. thanks barbara
