Hello

I’m Clare

Welcome to Knit Share Love

I am so glad our fibre paths have crossed…

I discovered my passion for knitting as I wandered along the trails of the Bibbulmun track in Western Australia back in 2011.

Since then wherever I’ve wandered so has my yarn and a pair of pointy sticks, with the gentle sound of clicking needles filling my days.

My wandering spirit is strong but for now I call Melbourne, Australia my home and share my love of knitting with you in this space – my online home, KnitShareLove.

Take a look around, Knit Share Love has:

  • Clear and engaging knitting patterns
  • A wide range of free tutorials
  • Inspiration to get the creativity flowing
  • Fibre stories from around the world

KNIT SHARE LOVE

My journey to Knit Share Love has taken a wandering path – filled with wonderful friendships
and inspiration from knitters around the world …

Read more about the story behind Knit Share Love below.

KNIT

The feeling of yarn running through my fingers is like no other, there is no denying it – I simply love knitting – it fills my soul with joy and the winding path it has led me on has changed my life. My passion for knitting has grown with each stitch, and I love that I am always learning about new things through my love for this craft.

While I love to knit at every given opportunity one of the things I have grown to love more than the act of knitting itself is being able to share my passion for knitting with others.

Creating beautiful, wearable designs that are both a joy to knit and a chance to learn new skills is what really makes my heart sing.

You can find all my knitting patterns here. I pride myself on writing clear, easy to follow patterns and have created lots of resources to help you enjoy the knitting process and create beautiful finished items that you will love wearing for years to come. Need to find the perfect cast on method, tired of wrangling too many needle points and want to learn to cable without a cable needle, not sure how to tell your k2tog from your ssk – I’ve got you covered.

SHARE

The knitting community is a magical place. Over the last few years I have moved a lot and each time this wonderful community has reached out a little further to embrace me. I have met so many amazing knitters from the far corners of the world.

Each day I am blown away by how inspiring this community is – sharing the creative process online is a beautiful way of reaching out and finding connections through our making. It is always wonderful seeing what you are up to. Use #knitsharelove on Instagram and Twitter so we can celebrate your creativity with you.

Sharing passions, skills and experiences is what makes this community such a rich and varied. In this space I love nothing more than to share the stories of others. Looking for somewhere to start – take a look at Knitter Journeys, 5 Minutes With, My Everyday Brew and #lovelocalyarn
