Emma Welford taught herself to knit in college where fortunately, Webs was her local yarn store! Emma started working at Webs in 2010 and began designing in 2012 at the encouragement of her coworkers. She now designs almost full time and has been published in Knitscene, special issues by Interweave Knits, Holla Knits, Valley Yarns, Universal Yarns, and her self-published line of patterns, Emma Welford Designs. Emma has a special fondness for unique colorwork designs, modern shapes and saturated colors. She believes that above all else, knitting should be fun and strives to harness that vibe in her patterns and her classes!
