About Under the Olive Tree Knits

Under the Olive Tree Knits is owned by Jem Arrowsmith, an avid knitter, designer and yarn dyer. The concept for Under the Olive Tree Knits was inspired by a beautiful, small Greek island with a relaxed pace of life. This is a haven for you to pick up your needles, take some time for yourself and create something beautiful, stitch by stitch. 

All patterns have been professionally tech edited and test knitted prior to publication and include links to video tutorials. All yarns are hand dyed by Jem, and all tools, notions and other knitty bits have been specially chosen or created with the knitter in mind.

New to knitting? Welcome! You can find everything you need to get started with the free learn to knit workshop.
