Alison Crowther-Smith

Welcome to my website

I hope you will enjoy the website, read the blog, and maybe come along to one of my own exclusive knitting workshops, in my home.

I also have a growing selection of exclusive hand-knitting patterns for sale.  These are single downloads and are £4 each.  These will be extended on a seasonal basis.

Your feedback is welcome, so please contact me.

What’s new?

  • All the 2014 courses are fully booked now.  For the Full Moons Course in January 2015 there are still 3 spaces left – book your places here.  If you would like to be added to a waiting list for any of the fully booked courses, please get in touch as I do sometimes have cancellations
  • New designs on the site:  Cave Pearls Throw and Mitts in Cocoon (both designs included in the download); and also Shatter Half-Moon Shawl – three options for yarns and finishes are included in that download
  • I have some handles that are suitable for the Bump Bag now available on the website, here
  • All my designs are now available as single patterns, costing £4 each.  You can find them here.  If you’d prefer a kit for yourself or as a gift, please contact me and I will be happy to make one up
  • I am now offering one-to-one knitting lessons with me, here at Court Cottage.  This can be booked as 4 lessons of 1 hour each, or 2 lessons of 2 hours and can cover whatever you like, from learn to knit upwards.  Less costly than you might think, and a lovely gift option.  Please contact me for further details and cost.
