Jenny Dowde

Her first two books, Freeform Knitting and Crochet (2004) and then Freeformations (2006) have been very successful around the world. From NSW, Australia, Jenny completed 6 years at art school and a course in machine knitting. Jenny has lectured on Colour, Design and Creative Knitting at knitting seminars around Australia. She has participated in Australian Textile Fibre Forum computer design workshops. She has also made polymer clay buttons for a designer knitwear company and taught polymer clay workshops at various Fibre Forums in Australia. In 1997 she discovered the wonderful medium, "scrumbling" or freeform crochet, with the only equipment required being a hook and lots of yarn! She now combines knitting with crochet in her freeform work. Since 2000 she has been teaching the 'scrumbling' technique throughout Australia and selling freeform designs in Australia and the USA.
