About André de Castro

André de Castro is a knitwear designer and instructor based in Porto, Portugal. His first training was as a classical violinist, but love of textiles and clothes led him to study Fashion Design and Illustration. His focus is the Portuguese Style of Knitting and applying its methods to making other traditions more effective, simple, and quick to execute. At this moment his focus is the Portuguese Style of Knitting and spreading this tradition abroad using the techniques from Portugal as a source of inspiration. André’s other passions include history and knitting traditions from around the world… so he decided to develop a way of using the Portuguese Style and apply it to all kinds of knitting techniques to make them more effective, simple, and quick to execute.
