About Me

Faye Perriam-Reed | Technical Editor | UK

Hi, I’m Faye and I’m an experienced technical editor and knitwear designer based in Bristol, UK.

From 2013-2021 I was Technical Editor for The Knitter and Simply Knitting, checking and grading up to 50 pattterns per month. These included accessories, homewares and a huge range of garment styles. I also proof-read many features and wrote regular masterclasses on various knitting techniques. Some of these are available on my tutorials page.

In February 2021 I decided it was time to go freelance as I wanted to expand the range of designers, publications and yarn companies I work with. It also means I have more time to work on my own knitting patterns and be with my young family.

I have been collecting images on my recent projects Pinterest board, which will give you need an idea of the sort of patterns I have been working on.

Being a technical editor really makes my brain tick. I love finding solutions to problems and I get to spend my working life surrounded by yarn, in conversation with inspiring people, constantly improving my skills and learning new tricks.

When I’m not working or knitting I love spending time with my kids, sewing, doing yoga, taking photos and spending time out on the Cornish coast.

If you like your socials, you can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest where you will see my latest WIPs and pattern releases.
