Edwin John Knits


Dan Lee is the dyer and designer behind Edwin John Knits. “I’ve been knitting since about 2008/9,” Dan says. “Mum was over for a visit in 2006/7, and I wanted something to bring us together, so I asked her to teach me to knit. … Now I’ve taken the plunge into releasing some patterns! I’m touched by the reception my first one received, as well as the sales I’ve already had. I am most grateful. And it inspires me on to dream up some more … so keep your eyes peeled for some colorful and funky designs.” Patterns are available on Payhip and Etsy.
