About Amy Snell

Knitter, instructor, designer Amy Snell loves spreading the knitting bug nearly as much as she enjoys knitting. It’s a beautiful canvas for connection within and across communities. Her approach is experimental; as she knits, she explores why things work or don’t and uncovers tips that can bring your knitting to the next level.

Amy has an eye for the unusual or unusually captivating. Her designs focus on color, contrast, and texture — often exploring unusual stitch patterns and clever construction in ways that are interesting but accessible.

Amy loves to help other knitters explore new techniques and expand the way they think about their knitting. Her goal is to make complex concepts accessible and approachable for all knitters, while sharing tips that simplify and improve your process, whether you’ve been knitting for several weeks or several decades! Amy has taught national events such as Vogue Knitting Live, Fiberworld, and Rhinebeck, and frequently shares tips and tricks on her website, DeviousKnitter.com.
