Jacki throwing mini skeins of yarn in the air

I’m Jacki, a knitting teacher and knitwear designer based in Bristol, UK. I’m all about encouraging knitters to try new things; whether that’s by attending one of my knitting workshops, or knitting one of my easy to follow knitting patterns.

My knitting patterns are all professionally tech-edited and thoroughly test knitted before publication, so you know you’re getting a lovely, straightforward knit. And they’re all size-inclusive; every adult garment design of mine is graded up to a 62in bust.

I teach knitting workshops online, and in person in Bristol at lovely local yarn store No Frills Knitting. Whether you’re an absolute beginner wanting to learn to knit, or you’re looking to master more advanced skills like colourwork or cable knitting, I’m all about helping knitters increase their confidence and learn new skills.

Watch the Woolly Badger podcast on YouTube

Yep, I’ve hauled my geriatric millennial self over to YouTube and started a knitting podcast. 

The latest episode is talking all about my new patterns Pegetha and the Summer Jimmy Jab, and going through yarn options, the pros and cons of different fibres, and the various fit options.

Plus there’s previews of upcoming designs, and an update on my journey into handspinning.
