About Under the Olive Tree Knits

Under the Olive Tree Knits is owned by Jem Arrowsmith, a knitting designer and independant yarn dyer based in the UK. Jem loves to create knitting patterns for hand dyed yarns.

Jem believes that knitting should be as relaxing and stress-free as possible so all knitting patterns have been professionally tech edited and test knitted prior to publication and include links to video tutorials too. All yarns are hand-dyed in small batches by Jem, and the knitting notions, tools and other knitty bits on the website have been created or carefully chosen with the knitter in mind.
