Katie Jones is a UK-based crochet artist who runs her own crochet brand alongside her mum where she makes and sells fun, colorful, hand-crocheted pieces with sustainability in mind. Crocheting has been in her family for generations and Kate was first introduced to it by her grandma. She went on to specialize in knitwear at Central Saint Martins art school in London.

Katie’s forte is creating wearable, artisanal collections that are big on color and also stay true to her grandma’s philosophy of making something beautiful out of nothing. Her pieces have been featured in the V&A and the Museo Salvatore Ferragamo in Florence as well as in publications including Vogue, Dazed and Confused, The Telegraph, The Guardian, and more. She also won the Selfridges Bright New Things Award in 2016.
