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 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.
