Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit my little corner of the internet.

I’m Ruth Maddock a hand knitting and crochet pattern designer from Herefordshire in the UK. 

I have been designing hand knitting and crochet patterns since the 1980’s.  

I love –

  • Designing

  • Colour

  • Natural Yarns

  • Good maths (Wow! Tell that to my 13-year-old self!)

  • Seeing my designs made and being worn (or used).

I’m also passionate about providing good customer service for those pesky patterns that that just don’t seem to go right, and I love teaching my skills.

Proudly supporting the work of TWAM as my chosen charity.

See more about their work – providing refurbished donated tools and equipment for craft and trade micro businesses in Africa HERE.
