About Under the Olive Tree Knits

Under the Olive Tree Knits is owned by Jem Arrowsmith, an avid knitter, designer and yarn dyer. Inspired by a small Greek island with a relaxed pace of life Jem believes that knittings should be as relaxing and stress-free as possible. 

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 the tools, notions and other knitty bits on the website have been carefully chosen or created with the knitter in mind.

New to knitting? Welcome! You can find everything you need to start your knitting journey with the free learn to knit workshop.
